ON Wednesday, July 31, 19 children from the Little Montessori House school - some as young as two years old, climbed Brent Knoll to raise money for charity.

Each year the school takes on a fundraising challenge and this year the trek was for the benefit of the Bridgwater Gift of Giving Homeless Shoebox Appeal.

Petra and Siobhan from Little Montessori House said: "We could not be prouder of our mini Montessorians."

Donations can be sent via paypal to littlemontessorihouse11@gmail.com, with donations accepted up to Wednesday, August 28.

Kelly Llewelyn founder of 'The Gift of Giving - The Homeless Shoebox Appeal' said: "We would like to say a massive thank you to the wonderful nursery and kind children for choosing to support us.

"With your generosity we are able to purchase items to support vulnerable adults and families facing hardship throughout the cold winter months. "Your act of kindness has touched our hearts. We can not thank you all enough."
