Anafartalar has joined an initiative by the Goodness Volunteers, a community group belonging to the Evkaf religious and cultural trust - and since Monday its pupils have been collecting bags of donated items for children in Syria who are under the age of 15.

More unwanted toys and clothes are being urgently requested by Anafartalar to meet Thursday's deadline for handing them over to Evkaf for shipping to Syria soon afterwards.
