Two primary schools in deprived areas of Morecambe want to make up Christmas gift packs for their children. They are asking the wider community for help. The packs would contain – as a minimum – a pair of pyjamas (ages 4-13) and a book. New or nearly new toys very welcome. Good quality children’s clothing is also needed – items such as socks, gloves, hats. Anything extra to help make a family’s Christmas more special would be wonderful. Our local contact is Suzanne Smith. She can collect (phone 770106) or items can be left at her home (41 Fell View). By 1st December please. If you (or someone you know in our villages) would welcome similar assistance, please let Suzanne know. She will keep details confidential.
