If you have an excess of toys, including soft and knitted toys, would you be interested in donating them to a worthy cause. A container of toys is being organised to go the Philippines where they will be distributed to orphanages and a centre for mentally and physically handicapped children in time for Christmas. Last Christmas Eve these children received only a cup of hot chocolate, so your gifts would be very welcomed. Telephone:045-869416 for more information or to arrange collection. A very deep thank you to those of you who ‘through word of mouth’ have already helped a great deal.
