Cadets from the Quedgeley branch of St John Ambulance are helping to give less fortunate children a better Christmas.
They have been busy preparing shoeboxes for the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal, which sends a box of Christmas presents to children in need of a little festive cheer.
On Wednesday night, the cadets put the finishing touches to their Christmas shoeboxes.
Jenny Frost, from the charity, was on hand to collect the boxes from the cadets who meet each week at the Q Club, in Quedgeley.
The group were also awarded £1,000 from the Quedgeley Community Trust to buy new uniforms.
