Times & Speaker readers are rising to the challenge with donations pouring in for our annual Christmas Present Appeal.
Run in conjunction with the Salvation Army and Asda, our appeal gathers gifts for distribution to families in need throughout our circulation area.
Presents for older people are also welcome so everyone can experience the joy the festive season brings.
Our appeal runs until Friday, December 13, and donations can be dropped off to our office at 29 Hope Street, Motherwell, or left at collection points in the Asda’s Motherwell store.
Donations should be new and unwrapped, but don’t need to be expensive. Gift ideas include soft toys, dolls and action figures, books, CDs and DVDs, art sets, jigsaws, board games and puzzles.
Clothes, including socks and underwear, and winter accessories such as hats and scarves are gratefully received, while items such as toiletries, diaries and calendars, chocolates and biscuits are great gifts for older people.
If your organisation has a donation let us know on 01698 242553 and we can arrange a photocall.
