The Salvation Army in Benhill Avenue is again running its Christmas Toy Appeal for vulnerable children, many whom may not receive a Christmas present this year. Tags are placed on the Christmas Tree with restricted information provided by social services, (i.e. the number of children and their ages).
The number of children they have been asked to consider as part of their appeal this year has increased from about 200 to about 300. The Salvation Army is concerned they will be unable to provide a gift to all the children, as they rely heavily on donations. We are sure our residents will want to contribute towards this worthy cause and help put a smile on the face of a child at Christmas.
