PUPILS from St Helen’s Primary School seem a caring bunch if these six are anything to go by.

They have helped a range of people who have been in difficulties.

There was an old woman walking in the street and she tripped over, so me and my friends helped her up.

Jaret Grover said: “A little boy from Key Stage 1 fell over and banged his head and I was the only one around to help him.

“He wasn’t bleeding, just crying and I went over and comforted him.”

Samuel James said: “I was at the leisure centre with my friend. He was swimming in the deep end and couldn’t touch the floor and was panicking a bit.

“I swam alongside him and encouraged him. He could swim but wasn’t very confident.”

Rachel Mayes said: “I was walking along the street with someone and it was very windy.

“They were at risk of getting blown over and I helped them.”

Jack Slimmings said: “There was an old woman walking in the street and she tripped over so me and my friends helped her up.

“She hurt her foot and we picked up her shopping for her.”

Lily Snowdon said: “There was a little kid in the playground and they knocked their broken arm so I helped them.

“I felt I needed to do it for him.”

Neave Wallace said: “I was with my club sea cadets and were doing some bag packing in Morrisons and we raised over £600. There was an old woman having trouble packing her bags so we picked things up for her and helped her pack.”
