LOCAL school pupils have been doing their bit for those less well-off in Eastern Europe.

The S4 XL Club from Glenrothes High School recently collected items for the Link Romania Shoe-box appeal, which provides families in Eastern Europe with essential items and toys.

Eleven shoe-boxes were filled in total by the club, and are now on their way to Romania.

Since 1991, Link Romania has been working to make a difference in the lives of poor and needy people in Romania and other Eastern European countries. Although the needs of the people no longer make headlines in the West, they are still as pressing as ever.
