Hun­dreds of kids to ben­e­fit from char­ity toy ap­peal

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A FUNDRAIS­ING ap­peal to pro­vide toys for needy chil­dren has smashed its tar­get thanks to read­ers.

The Mac­cles­field Ex­press joined forces with the Com­mu­nity and Vol­un­tary Ser­vice (CVS) Cheshire East and asked peo­ple to do­nate toys to fam­i­lies who may be fac­ing a hard time this Christ­mas.

And with more than 2,300 toys col­lected, ev­ery­one on their list will be get­ting some­thing to smile about on the big day.

Sally Davies, mar­ket­ing man­ager for CVS, said: “We’ve been able to help 51 or­gan­i­sa­tions across Cheshire East which is just fan­tas­tic.

“We would like to give a huge thank you to all those who do­nated toys and gifts to their 2015 Christ­mas Toy Ap­peal. The re­sponse has been over­whelm­ing and all the toys re­ceived will now be on their way to good homes this Christ­mas.”

Many do­na­tions were made to the MAC Multi-Ac­tiv­ity Cen­tre in Mac­cles­field and al­most half of the 2,300 toys re­ceived came from staff at As­traZeneca’s Alder­ley Park.

Thanks to the gen­eros­ity of peo­ple across Cheshire East, CVS has this year had some left over to give to other needy chil­dren.
