The Salvation Army are appealing for help over the festive period. The aim is provide a glimmer of happiness to the those less fortunate over the Christmas period.
The organisation works tirelessly all year round to provide care and companionship for the most vulnerable in society.
This year there are several ways you can contribute.
1, Cook up some sweet treats for your friends and family: Bake sales are always popular. You can sell individual biscuits and cakes or make bags of festive truffles. Ideal for that secret Santa Gift.
2, The Wish Tree: Write your wish for the holidays and hang in on one of their trees
3, Donate a gift: When you are shopping for the perfect gift for your nearest and dearest, put an extra gift in the basket and bring it to one of out collections points.
Please give a thought to those less fortunate than yourself, who may not have anything to open on Christmas morning. A young person who lives on the streets, a family struggling to buy food, or an elderly person who may not speak to another person all day.
If you are buying gifts please do not wrap them, the team can then see which age group and gender it will be most suitable for. They will then be distributed to those in need.
