A county shopping centre has helped to make hu ndreds of children’s Christmas extra special.

Blyth’s Keel Row Shopping Centre teamed up with St Oswald’s Hospice and Children North East to collect over 300 presents donated by the Blyth public for its annual ‘Give a Gift’ campaign.

The campaign invited shoppers to select a tag from the gift tree that was located in one of the malls at the shopping centre, and then buy an appropriate present to be given to the child on iChristmas Day.

Danielle Callender, fundraiser at St Oswald’s, said: “The extra gifts given to us this Christmas, will allow children and young people who use our services to experience the joy of receiving a present.”
