STUDENTS, parents, the community and staff at Holy Spirit Primary School have donated food and toys for charity Teardrops to give to people in need across the community.

The donations have been given over 40 days for Lent, with each class collecting more than 40 items each.

The eggs were picked up by volunteers, and on Wednesday, Johnny Vegas gifted each of the children an Easter egg at the school as a surprise from Teardrops for their kindness.
