Franklin County News - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

Christ­mas is cer­tainly on its way - there’s no get­ting away from the fes­tive pro­mo­tions al­ready in shop win­dows en­tic­ing us to depart with our hard-earned cash.

While most of us look for­ward to Christ­mas, we may still worry about the mi­nor stresses of sort­ing out Christ­mas din­ner and de­cid­ing what gifts to buy our loved ones. But for some the stresses of Christ­mas take on a whole dif­fer­ent level.

There are those who can’t afford to buy gifts, strug­gle to get food on the ta­ble at the best of times and face the prospect of spend­ing Christ­mas alone.

That’s where we, and our com­mu­ni­ties, can help, with our Smiles for Christ­mas cam­paign.

As we re­port on page 1, busi­nesses are get­ting be­hind the ap­peal this year, and that Christ­mas joy will be spread even fur­ther thanks to their gen­eros­ity.

Our Christ­mas tree will be up nice and early this year, all set for the start of Novem­ber, and we’ll be wel­com­ing do­na­tions on be­half of Franklin Fam­ily Sup­port from then.
