Salvation Army appeals for donations for Christmas toys and tins appeal
The Salvation Army has appealed for people to get involved in its annual toys and tins appeal, which was launched earlier this month.
The appeal, which has been running for more than 30 years, helped more than 5,500 people in Norfolk who were struggling to make ends meet last year.
People are being asked to donate generously again this year so that toy and food hampers can be sent out to families in need.
Major Anita Cotterill, who co-runs the Salvation Army Church in Diss, said: “With the issues surrounding Covid-19, it’s been a difficult year and there is a greater need now compared to late year. We’ve had a good response so far and we hope that will continue.
“Part of our Christian ethos is to help people who need it most, and the toys and tins appeal has been an important part of that for many years.”
Donations are being collected online this year through a Just Giving page and an Amazon wishlist.
Further details on how to make a donation can be found by going online to the group’s website at www.salvationarmy.org.uk/toys-and-tins-appeal.
