The Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Kevin Cluskey, 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 gifts right across the borough.

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 Monday, December 22. Gift tokens are particularly welcome to be given to older children.

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 Kevin Cluskey, said: “This year we have again teamed up with Asda for the Toy Appeal which should hopefully help so many children across the borough.

“I would ask 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, so please make this year just as special for those less fortunate.

“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: “Please bring your un-wrapped toys or gifts and put them into the sleigh in store.

“We couldn’t do this without your support. You really do make a difference to these children in Southport making sure they have a toy to open on Christmas day. Thank you so much for your support this year.”
