Villagers have responded warmly to an appeal for winter clothes and food from Shayla, a 13-year-old Stanhoe resident.
Shayla is a pupil at Glebe House School, Hunstanton. With support from the school, she and her friends have collected more than 1600 items for homeless people, including food, hats, scarves and gloves. They will go to the Benjamin Foundation, King’s Lynn night shelter, the Purfleet Trust and the Hunstanton food bank.
Shayla lives in Stanhoe at Ivy Farm Barns with her eight-year-old brother TJ and her parents Kathrine and Trevor. The family are from Texas, and will be returning to the USA in a few months.
“We’ve lived in Stanhoe for three years and we love it,” said Kathrine. Trevor is a computer engineer who has been working at RAF Marham.
