KIND-HEARTED youngsters have been helping their local community.

Ahead of Christmas, Year 9 pupils at Ysgol Brynhyfryd, in Ruthin, were busy collecting food donations from their kind-hearted families to make into Christmas hampers.

These were used as gifts to local residential homes Llys Marchan, Llys Awelon, Trem y Foel and Llys Erw.
