Bringing Christmas Joy to Local Children
Monday, 03 December 2018
The parents and guardians of children at Beech House, Bolton School’s Infant School, have once again shown themselves to be incredibly generous when thinking about other, less fortunate, children in the borough. Hundreds of toys and gifts, nearly all new, have been collected over the past weeks and these were received by a team of delighted Bolton Lions volunteers who make the pick-up every year.
Babu Roye, one of several volunteers collecting the mountain of toys for children aged 0-18 years, said: “Last year we gave gifts to 1200 children, the number grows every year and I am sure this year, the number will be higher still. We are immensely grateful to the parents from Bolton School and from across the town who show such generosity towards other families.”
The Christmas children toys’ appeal is run by Bolton Lions in conjunction with The Bolton News. Toys can be donated at a number of locations across the towns and the campaign continues in earnest this week and next.
