Read­ers’ gen­eros­ity al­ways amazes us

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

ONCE again, the re­sponse of Ken­tish Ex­press read­ers to our Christ­mas ap­peal has been over­whelm­ing. Hun­dreds of toys and other good­ies have been dropped into our North Street offices by kind-hearted read­ers since we launched the Christ­mas Present Ap­peal with the Sal­va­tion Army at the end of last month. The first batch was col­lected this week by Val Bar­clay from the char­ity, who was de­lighted to drive away a car full of gifts to give to those who most need them. We said when the ap­peal was launched that the gen­eros­ity of our read­ers – even in tough eco­nomic times – never ceases to amaze us. This year has been no ex­cep­tion. A sin­cere thank you to every­one who has made the ap­peal such a suc­cess. Your kind­ness will a help to so many peo­ple in need over Christ­mas. If you want to make a do­na­tion it’s still not too late and gifts can be brought along to our of­fice un­til the end of the week. De­tails of how you can help are in our story on the op­po­site page. Mark Scott, the Sal­va­tion Army’s se­nior leader in Ash­ford, said he felt en­cour­aged and blessed that so many peo­ple thought to give to oth­ers at Christ­mas. We couldn’t agree more.
