PUPILS from a Huddersfield high school are to help victims of the Iran earthquake disaster.
King James's School, Almondbury, responded to a call from Huddersfield Rotary Club member Clr Ann Denham, to send supplies to the devastated region. The club does voluntary work in areas hit by natural disasters.
The school was asked to fill 10 Aquaboxes with essential items, including clothes, cutlery, soap and plasters. Aquaboxes are large plastic containers which the Rotary Club fills with water and transport to disaster areas.
In the wake of the Iran earthquake, the Rotary Club decided it would be more helpful for stricken regions not just to receive empty water containers but containers packed with essential items.
The school hopes each year group of 160 students will be able to fill two boxes.
* An appeal in the Examiner, backing Unicef help for Iran, raised more than £5,000.
