Sefton Council Christmas Gift Appeal


The Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Stephen Kermode, is asking as many people as possible across the borough to get behind this year’s Christmas gift appeal.

Once again Sefton Council is again teaming up with Asda (Southport) to help as many young people as possible with Christmas gifts.

The annual appeal asks all residents in Sefton to try and provide presents for some of the borough’s most deserving children and make this Christmas extra special for them.

Gifts, for children of all ages, can be taken to either Bootle or Southport Town Halls or dropped at the Asda store at Central 12 in Southport until Wednesday, December 23. Gift tokens are particularly welcome to be given to older children.

Gifts can also be left at Formby and Crosby libraries as well as at Sefton Council run leisure centres.

All presents collected will later be distributed to children and young people throughout the borough by volunteers from Sefton Council and Sefton Children’s Trust on behalf of the Mayor.

Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Stephen Kermode, said: “Similar to previous years, we have teamed up with Asda for the Toy Appeal which should hopefully help so many children across the borough.

“I am urging anyone who lives or works in Sefton to try and donate a present for the annual Mayor’s Christmas Gift Appeal. Every year the generosity of people is amazing and I’m hoping 2015 will be no different as we make Christmas that little bit special for those less fortunate.

“Any donation is welcome and we are looking for gifts for all ages from babies and toddlers to teens. To ensure we can get the right gift to the right child may I please ask that the gifts be new and be left unwrapped.”

Sharon Gregory-Wareing, Asda Community Life Champion, added: “You can make a difference to a young person’s life by making their Christmas special by donating a new unwrapped gift or toy. Thank you for your continued support.”
