GENEROUS children have Christmas wrapped up.
The youngsters from Tattenhall Park Primary School teamed up with the Mall Chester to help make a difference to the lives of homeless children this Christmas.
More than 170 pupils donated and wrapped presents for children living at Save the Family’s accommodation centres in Chester and North Wales.
The move follows the successful Chronicle-BiG Storage gift appeal on behalf of the charity.
Representatives from Mall retailer Build-a-Bear Workshop visited the school with their mascot bear, ‘Bearemy’ and representatives from the Mall Chester and Save the Family to thank the pupils.
Headteacher Laura Noble said: “We wanted the children to become involved in a campaign that would be meaningful to them.
“The children have been very generous, donating gifts from teddies to board games, make-up and baby clothes and have kindly wrapped the gifts ready to be opened on Christmas Day.”
Julie Williams, Marketing Manager at the Mall Chester, said: “We are delighted to have teamed up with schoolchildren from Tattenhall Park Primary School for our Christmas gift campaign.”
Save the Family Chief Executive Ian Oulton added: “Thanks to the generosity of donations from Tattenhall Park Primary School and Mall Chester customers, children under the care of Save the Family can experience a truly remarkable Christmas.”
