A small school in North Cumbria is a regular contributor towards clothing collections for the great North Air Ambulance, so much so that they are now recognised by the charity as making the biggest single contribution in the whole region.

Fir Ends School in the village of Smithfield, just outside Carlisle, have raised more than £20,000 for the charity in recent years by donating old clothes.The most recent collection was over two tonnes worth of clothing.

The Air Ambulance have said that for such a small rural community the amount of contributions given is incredible.
