Readers are being asked to donate a gift to the Express Christmas Toy Appeal 2014.

We want to make sure every child in the south east has at least one toy to open on Christmas morning. We need people to donate a new gift for children aged from newborn to 17.

The toys will be donated to Wakefield Council’s family services team in Hemsworth and distributed to needy and neglected children throughout the area.

Appeal co-ordinator Gemma Jimmison said: “Our readers have been very generous in previous years and we are hoping that will continue for Christmas 2014.”

Toys can be dropped off at the Hemsworth Town Council Community Centre on Bullenshaw Road, The Grove, Stockingate, South Kirkby, and the Westfield Centre, South Elmsall. Gifts should be unwrapped so that family services can distribute them to the right child. The closing date for donations is 5pm on Friday, December 12.
