STREET children in Ghana are a little better off this week thanks to the kind thoughts of youngsters from Oak Farm School in Farnborough.

When a request for school books, pens and pencils came in the Oak Farm pupils leapt into action, even though they were in the middle of their activities week.

Head girl Kerrie Ciardini and Year 8 council member Simon Knight collected £200 worth of equipment.

Oak Farm hopes to maintain the bond with its new friends.

Other good causes supported by the school include the teenage ward and the baby care unit at Frimley Park Hospital, the Mozambique food appeal and Jeans for Genes.

The school is also raising money for Frimley Park's paediatric A and E unit.
