Waking up on Christmas morning is one of the best feelings of the entire year, no matter what age you are. But, for some families, the struggle to put food on the table and keep the house warm take priority over gift-giving. Which is why the Caring Christmas Campaign has been launched.
A collaboration between The Bolton News and the charity, Bolton Lions, the campaign aims to provide children from birth to the age of 16 with a bright spot in what can be a bleak time of year for them.
Last year, almost 900 children across Bolton benefitted from the great work carried out by the Bolton Lions, and they team are looking to beat that this year. Once again, they have been working tirelessly, since Boxing Day, in fact, raising money to buy toys and gifts. But the charity also relies on donations of money and presents.
So The Bolton News and the Bolton Lions are asking you to do one thing this Christmas; add an extra gift to your shopping lists, a gift which will then be donated to the cause. It doesn't have to be anything extravangant, it can be new or second-hand (as long as it is in good condition). These will then be delivered in time to be received on Christmas Day.
If you'd like to help a wonderful cause, and make someone's Christmas a happier day, then toys and gifts can be dropped off at a number of collection points across the town, or even colleceted from your home by one of the Bolton Lion's members.
