Pupils at Beech House Infant School have been busy collecting
toys and gifts for local children that are less fortunate than
The children brought in new and second hand toys to donate to
the Bolton Lions, who will distribute the gifts to families who
cannot afford to buy presents for their children this Christmas.
Volunteers at the Lions collect toys from local schools, churches
and businesses as part of the 'Caring Christmas Appeal' which is
run each year. The gifts will now be sorted and redistributed to
those in need.
Bolton Lions Club started in 1969 and is part of Lions
International, a worldwide voluntary organisation with over 45,000
clubs in 193 countries, and more than 1.3 million members, making
it the largest organisation of its kind in the world. Lions are
ordinary people volunteering in their local community raising money
for good causes. Last year a total of 434 Families and 926 Children
received toys through the Christmas appeal, and it is hoped that
the number will be even higher this year.
