Lou Deacon, Area Manager for Kinder Haven Nurseries (Bradford and Leeds), wanted to share how her nurseries have helped The Salvation Army collect presents for children in need at Christmas:
During December, our parents were encouraged to bring in new toys and gifts for children aged 0-5 years to support The Salvation Army Christmas Toy Appeal. Our parents and staff showed huge community spirit, with the collection being a massive success.
We managed to collect lots of presents for children that otherwise would not have received a Christmas present this year. These donations were greatly received by our local Salvation Army at St Margarets Church in Holmewood. Well done to all.
