Morrisons in Netherfield backs charities aiming to give disadvantaged children a better Christmas

A supermarket in Netherfield is backing two charities aiming to put festive cheer into the lives of disadvantaged children this Christmas.

Morrisons is backing the Bags of Blessings appeal and also supporting the Great Notts Christmas Toy Appeal.

Bags of Blessings is a newly formed local charity that delivers toys to children whose families rely on food or clothing banks.

They were very successful last year delivering 335 bags (each containing 4-5 gifts) to children.

People can donate toys, chocolates and other gifts which will be used to make up the bags that will then be handed out to children before Christmas.

The store is also supporting The Great Notts Christmas Toy Appeal, a project that has been running for over 30 years and hands out donated toys to needy children.

The donation station is in the store now for customers to use if they want to add anything to the collection.

Morrison’s Netherfield store community champion, Sarah Jackson, said: “We really want to try and give both charities as many toys as we can so no child goes without.
