Sidmouth’s branch of the Salvation Army is ensuring some of Devon’s children who might not otherwise receive a gift will wake up with presents on Christmas Day.
The charity is encouraging local people to add an extra toy to their shopping list so families struggling to buy a gift for their children can make sure there is something for them to open on Christmas Day.
People are invited to donate a new unused and unwrapped toy for a child aged up to 16 years old to the Salvation Army in Sidmouth.
Major Stephen White, The Salvation Army's divisional leader in Devon and Cornwall, said: "The Salvation Army's Christmas Present Appeal is a wonderful opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child."
Items can be dropped off at the community drop-in at Sidmouth Youth Centre on Thursday, December 12, between 10.30am and 2pm.
Alternative drop-offs can be arranged by contacting Angie Carney by email on Angela.Carney@salvationarmy.org.uk
