Still time to do­nate to fes­tive ap­peal

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

HUN­DREDS of fam­i­lies in Hinck­ley are ex­pected to ben­e­fit from the town’s Christ­mas Ap­peal which will pro­vide presents and food to those who need it.

Each year the Hinck­ley and Bos­worth Christ­mas Ap­peals helps hun­dreds of fam­i­lies en­joy the fes­tive cel­e­bra­tions with­out the worry of buy­ing presents or not hav­ing enough food on the ta­ble.

This is made pos­si­ble be­cause of the dona­tions from lo­cal peo­ple and busi­nesses.

Do­na­tion bins have been dot­ted around the bor­ough and some are al­ready over­flow­ing with new toys.

Last year over 300 parcels of toys and food went to lo­cal fam­i­lies and this year more busi­nesses have joined forces to make sure those in need once again ben­e­fit at Christ­mas time.

Jen­nie Wroe, Hinck­ley and Bos­worth’s Sure Start Chil­dren’s Cen­tre Co­or­di­na­tor, said: “It is great to have sup­port from our lead­ing re­tail­ers Asda, Tesco and Mor­risons.

“We are lucky enough to have do­na­tion bins in other lo­cal busi­ness, com­mu­nity groups and lo­ca­tions too and it makes a re­ally pos­i­tive im­pact when lo­cal peo­ple make dona­tions to the ap­peal.

“We have one week left for lo­cal peo­ple to make dona­tions in the var­i­ous bins around the bor­ough.

“The gifts are re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated and make such a dif­fer­ence to the lives of young peo­ple liv­ing lo­cally.”

Do­na­tion bins can be found at Hinck­ley’s chil­dren and fam­ily cen­tre, Mor­risons, Tesco, Asda, Hinck­ley Hub coun­cil of­fice, West­field In­fant School, Bar­well Academy, St Bernards Day Nurs­ery, Asquith Wind­mill Day Nurs­ery, Burbage Day Nurs­ery, Hinck­ley and Rugby Build­ing So­ci­ety, Hinck­ley Li­brary and The Sal­va­tion Army.

The ap­peal will end on Fri­day Novem­ber 2 so all dona­tions must be made by that date.
