Festive gift appeal aids needy children

Have your say

NEEDY children in Doncaster are set to benefit from a Christmas campaign aimed at bringing a smile to the faces of youngsters.

Doncaster Junior Chamber and Doncaster Junior Lawyers have joined forces to launch the 2012 Secret Santa appeal in association with Atherton Godfrey Solicitors.

The appeal aims to bring Christmas to local children who might otherwise not receive a present.

Last year the appeal helped bring festive fun to thousands of local children including one family escaping domestic violence who had to leave their home behind.

The generosity of Doncaster people made sure the children, all under five years old, had a gift to open on Christmas morning and a smile to go with it.

If you would like to help, gifts can be donated to the appeal up until Monday, December 17, at the offices of Atherton Godfrey Solicitors, 8 Hall Gate, Doncaster or see www.easyfundraising.org.uk to donate.
