Donated toys will go to needy children

I would like to express my sincere thanks on behalf of Morpeth Lions Club to the generous customers of the Asda stores in both Cramlington and Ashington who donated to our Christmas toy collection this year.

The club is delighted with the results of these collections, which enabled the Lions to put together a significant quantity of Christmas presents for needy children in the local area.

All of the toys and gifts donated were firstly sorted into age groups and gift wrapped by the Lions and their partners and wives before being transported to various children’s organisations such as the child support unit, health centres and the disabled children’s team.

We are always aware that there are so many worthy causes and organisations needing help at this time of the year and therefore we very much appreciate the continued support that has been given to the Lions club this Christmas and throughout 2013.

May I also take this opportunity to thank the managers and the community champions of both Asda stores for their help and organisation in the Christmas toy collection.

Finally, on behalf of Morpeth Lions Club, I would like to wish everyone our very best wishes for the New Year.

Thank you once again for your support over the past year and we look forward to being of service to the community in 2014.
