Toy Appeal at Little Oaks

Christmas saw over 4,500 toys delivered to children who have very little, and it was all down to you.

The Give a Gift 2014 toy appeal, a joint campaign by the Lincolnshire Free Press, We’ll Let Your House, Beales, Sainsbury’s and South Holland District Council, exceeded 2013’s efforts by three times, with everyone involved overwhelmed by the generosity of South Holland.

In the few days before Christmas, families and children across our area received toy deliveries from the team at We’ll Let Your House, which brought joy to all.

Harry Drury, director at We’ll Let Your House, said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the partners of this campaign, without whom we wouldn’t have collected even a quarter of the presents donated.

“I would also like to thank the people and local businesses in our area who have been kind enough to donate gifts, including Baytree Garden Centre, Karsten UK, Little Oaks nursery and the Boys of Festival Garden Centre.

“I would also like to say massive thank you to Spalding Round Table who spent an entire evening wrapping presents at Broad Street Business Centre for us, Phil Scarlet and family for wrapping presents and distributing them in the Sutton Bridge area and the dedicated team at We’ll Let Your House for the time they have taken outside of their working day to help wrap and distribute presents.

“The true meaning of Christmas is giving and sharing and the people of our area should be proud for bringing the true meaning of Christmas to so many children this year!”
