A MASS of pencil cases and notebooks were crammed into a mountain of schoolbags for children around the world in a charity event in Weston.
The Bucket & Spade pub hosted a bag-packing day to put together kits for charity School In A Bag.
Somerset Avenue pub-goers donated notebooks, pencils, maths tools and lunchboxes to fill bags, ready to go to help children in need.
The pub’s manager Tina Cochran said: “It was wonderful to see the children so keen to help other youngsters – they were really interested in doing their bit.
“Providing basic school equipment is such an easy and simple thing to do but it can make a big difference and help kids in impoverished communities get a better chance at a better start in life.”
