Young martial arts students kicked off their Christmas project by filling dozens of shoeboxes with goods for the less fortunate.
Members of the East Coast Martial Arts Academy got together to pack and wrap as many shoeboxes as possible for the Operation Christmas Child project.
The shoeboxes were filled with goods and necessities for children in third world countries, packed with school supplies, toys, arts and crafts, sweets and hygiene items.
Together they have filled and wrapped 27 shoeboxes, selecting extra goods which were donated by local shops, superstores and members of the community.
Instructors Elizabeth Over, Ian Over, Natasha Southerland and Aydon Davies said they were 'extremely thrilled' with the success of this year's charity appeal.
