The collection is for children from new-born babies to 16-year-olds. The Salvation Army advises against buying electronically based gifts like DVDs or video games, as they cannot be certain that each child has access to equipment to use such a gift. They have also said that lots of people buy gifts for girls aged 3-12, and so gifts for boys and teenagers would be highly welcomed also.

For details, call 01733 511030. The collection closes on December 17.
