Members of Stracathro WRI have rallied round to support the Backpack Project run by the charity Mary’s Meals.
And their efforts have seen enough items donated to fill a total of eight backpacks.
These backpacks will now be sent to Malawi, Liberia, Uganda, Romania and other countries where the supplies are required.
Each pack contains toothpaste, a toothbrush, soap, a towel, clothes, a notepad, pencils, ruler, crayons, a tennis ball.
Making backpacks is a seen as a more cost effective way to send these articles, rather than money, as the items which can be bought abroad are usually of poorer quality.
