CHESTER Business Club this week backed The Chronicle/BiG Storage Toy Appeal with a £100 donation for Save the Family.
The donation will be used to buy gifts for young people and children, such as toiletries, socks, and other small gifts which are not classed as toys.
Neil Jones, chairman of Chester Business Club, said: “Our club is delighted to be the business partner for this year’s Toy Appeal.
“Save the Family has for many years been critically important in supporting the Chester area’s families in need, and our partnership with them in the appeal gives us an important opportunity to play our part in giving something back to the local community by continuing our support for local charities.”
Edna Speed from Save the Family said: “We are delighted that Chester Business Club is supporting the toy appeal and thank them for their kind generosity.
“It is not just about the gift but the fact that there is still a strong element of caring and sharing in our communities today.”
There are still weeks to go before Christmas and although readers' generosity seems to know no bounds there must be lots of people out there who probably haven’t even written their Christmas shopping lists, let alone thought about hitting the shops.
When you do, please give a thought to the underprivileged children in the community.
Although the Christmas Toy Room at BiG Storage is beginning to fill and is starting to resemble Santa’s Grotto, we still have a long way to go.
This is the fourth year that BiG Storage has run a Christmas Appeal in conjunction with the Chester Chronicle with the donations going to Save the Family.
Save the Family is dedicated to helping homeless families and individuals in their time of need. The charity, which has been operating successfully for 34 years, offers emergency accommodation, adult training facilities and emotional support to help homeless families and individuals resettle back into the community.
