THE Wetherby News has joined forces with the town’s Toy Appeal to provide gifts for needy children at Christmas.

Readers can leave new toys for the appeal at the Westgate offices.

An organiser said: “Can you imagine a child waking up on Christmas morning to find no present? Unfortunately this happens all too often these days, even in this area.

“This is an opportunity for you to donate gifts to be distributed to these children.”

They added: “We are asking people to buy an extra present this year as they go out Christmas shopping.

“It doesn’t have to be an expensive gift, it’s the thought that counts. The thought that someone cares.”

People can leave items at the Memorial Garden in North Street on Saturdays, from November 19 to December 10.

New toys only are needed for ages to 15 years, but especially for 11 to 15 years.
