Beech House Spreads Festive Cheer

Monday, 01 December 2008

Pupils at the Infant School have been busy collecting toys and gifts that can be passed on to local children that are less fortunate than themselves via the Bolton Lions.

Volunteers are working tirelessly at the Lions to collect toys from local schools, churches and businesses. This year has seen a doubling of the requests for gifts for poorer children, although the people of Bolton have been donating more than ever too. The Caring Christmas Appeal is run each year and aims to help families who cannot afford to buy presents for their children; this year it is being given wide publicity by the Bolton News and Tower FM.

Lion Tony Murphy said: "we are always grateful to Bolton School Infants' School; this is one of our big collection points each year. Now the job of putting toys, games and gifts for children in bags ready for delivery has begun at the industrial unit where the donations are stored. We need to get them back to schools who will then give the gifts out to parents before the Christmas break."
