WITH next Wednesday's deadline fast approaching we are making once last huge appeal to everyone to please, please, donate a gift to our Christmas Toy Appeal.
Toys of all shapes and sizes are needed for needy children across Mid Cheshire, and we depend on you, our readers, to help make some Christmas wishes come true.
Our fantastic Santas from Vale Royal Lions have been busy liaising with charities and organisations who work with deprived families to find out where the need is greatest and there are even more children on their lists this year.
So please do what you can to help. Gifts of all types are needed but particularly for children up to the age of 14, who sometimes get overlooked in the rush to help the tots.
Anything you can afford will be greatly appreciated and if you cannot think of anything suitable to buy we will gladly accept money or cheques made out to Vale Royal Lions who will then buy something on your behalf.
We accept only brand new items because these are the gifts the children will be unwrapping on
Christmas Day and we ask you not to wrap them to helping the sorting operation.
The deadline is lunchtime on Wednesday, December 8, so there isn't much time left. The collection point is at our office 80 Witton Street, Northwich, just past the library.
