Boxes full of toys and treats for disadvantaged children are winging their way from Cromer to Serbia in time for Christmas.
Ninety shoeboxes have been stuffed with toys, chocolate, and toiletries by youngsters at the Suffield Park infants and nursery school.
The Cromer children aged three to seven have been assembling the goody boxes as part of a larger international Operation Christmas Child aid collection which regularly sends 200,000 boxes to Serbia alone.
School nursery nurse Wendy Williams said the boxes contained everything day things such as toys, bars of chocolate, flannels, soap and toothbrushes that were real treats for the youngsters in disadvantaged places.
