Bookmark

An Arnold-based charity which distributes donated gifts to deprived young people across Nottingham has launched its Christmas appeal.

The charity put collection boxes in local schools, churches, and businesses, with the request for small, pocket money toys, stationery, books, or items of confectionery. 

They then sort the donations into age groups, gift wrap each item and put 4 or 5 gifts into a red cotton bag to be distributed to young people aged 0-16 via food banks, homeless and refugee charities or organisations which support disadvantaged children.

The charity, which has its headquarters in Daybrook, are now appealing for Christmas donations so they can hand gifts to youngsters and those in need over the festive period.
