Pupils from Marham’s Cherry Tree Academy have teamed up with servicemen and women from the nearby RAF Marham base to spread Christmas cheer to those serving overseas.

Members of the school council helped the station’s community support flight team to pack more than 250 shoeboxes, including confectionary, toiletries and a card,

Commanding officer Gary Walker said: “We receive tremendous support from the local community throughout the year and would like to thank our local school in helping to pack the gift boxes, which I know will be very gratefully received by those deployed away from home.”

Academy vice-principal Cheryl Sharp said: “We are all very proud of what they do and are thinking of them during this time, happily looking forward to their return.”
