Do you have toys to do­nate?

Leek Post & Times - - NEWS -

A LEEK woman is ap­peal­ing for toys to help chil­dren from fam­i­lies suf­fer­ing from do­mes­tic abuse.

Ju­lia Green­wood is help­ing to pro­mote Arch North Staffs Christ­mas toy ap­peal.

Arch works in North Stafford­shire and sur­round­ing ar­eas sup­port­ing adults, chil­dren, young peo­ple, fam­i­lies and pro­fes­sion­als on a mis­sion to pre­vent and tackle do­mes­tic abuse, help end home­less­ness and pro­mote so­cial in­clu­sion.

Ju­lia said: “As a previous cus­tomer this is some­thing that’s close to my heart.

“Un­for­tu­nately many chil­dren and their par­ent will spend Christ­mas in a refuge, and it will be very lonely.

“Most vic­tims leave with their chil­dren lit­er­ally with just the clothes they are wear­ing. I would like to help make Christ­mas a happy time for them where pos­si­ble.”

Ar­range­ments have been made for peo­ple to drop off toys at Laser Ra­dio in Bank House, Leek, Mon­day to Fri­day, 9am-2pm.
