The Salvation Army needs your help to make Christmas special for children, families and others who have little or nothing under the tree on Christmas morning. Until mid-December, our local Salvation Army centre will be running a Christmas Present Appeal. Please support the appeal by donating new unwrapped toys and gifts for children who might not otherwise receive a Christmas present. The gifts will then be wrapped and distributed to those in need. All new, unwrapped toys and gifts are welcome and will be distributed in the local area in time for Christmas.

Bring in your gifts and pass them on to your registration teacher.
