As a result of Chester’s Toy Appeal, organised by Chesterfield FC and the Community Trust, more than 120 families have been provided with toys which will be wrapped up and opened on Christmas Day by children who would otherwise miss out.
Sponsored by CRS Accident Repair, the appeal saw local businesses and individuals kindly donate new toys which were distributed via charities and to those who made successful applications.
Chesterfield’s marketing manager, Bridget Ball, said: “It is heart-warming to know that we have been able to help so many families at such an important time of the year.
“It was a real community effort. The success of the appeal hinged on the generosity of those companies and individuals who donated toys – together with the support of CRS Accident Repair – and I would like to thank everyone who helped.”
