In the run up to Christmas, students at Bellver International College have begun to collect toys to help those less privileged than themselves. The students are being encouraged to bring in their unwanted toys so that they may be recycled.
Members of the Bellver Leos club were invited to attend the collection and distribution centre in Pont d’Inca where they could see, first hand, what happens to these toys.
When the toys arrive at the centre they were first sorted and checked, and any repairs and cleaning was undertaken.
The Leos were shown how recycled paper and cardboard could be made into a decorative new material that is used to cover the boxes for the toys to put in ready to be sold.
Many of the volunteers working at the centre were unemployed or had other problems and the centre provides them with the opportunity to learn new skills.
