Teenagers delivered hampers full of food to elderly residents in a gesture of festive generosity to make sure they do not miss out on Christmas treats.
Pupils from every class at Haverstock School, Haverstock Hill, Chalk Farm, packed and delivered hampers to people living on the nearby Denton Estate in Malden Crescent on Friday.
It is a scheme that has run at the school annually for nearly 30 years to ensure the residents do not go hungry over Christmas.
The school tries to make sure the same pupil visits the same resident every year.
Nikki Haydon, community partnerships and extended services coordinator, said: “We want to give something back to the local community.”
