17:16 14 September 2016
With help from a secondary school in Harlesden a lorry containing boxes of books has made its way to Romania.
The project, Books For Romania, is collaboration between Newman Catholic College (NCC), in Harlesden Road, Brent Library and Romanian Community.
Ten boxes filled with educational books were dispatched to High School of Sport from Botosani, Romania on Saturday, with help from the Tarsin transport company.
The books, which were due to arrive on Tuesday, are donated free to students aged between seven and 18 to help them learn English.
Danny Coyle, headmaster of NCC, said: “Newman Catholic College was delighted to lend its support to the My Romanian Community campaign to send books to schools in Romania.
“Along with Brent Library hundreds of books were collected throughout the summer term and in August two car loads left Brent and delivered the reading material to two schools in Romania.
He added: “Community work and awareness of global issues is central to the Newman values that permeate the school. We will always welcome the opportunity to support those less well off than ourselves.”
