Local community volunteer group, Hands On Wednesfield (HOW), would like to thank the James Beattie Trust, for their very generous donation towards the Christmas Toy Project.
This is the second time the Trust has helped out and because of their generosity, HOW were able to purchase and distribute toys to children from families across Wolverhampton, who were facing financial hardship at Christmas.
HOW joined forces with the Christmas Lunch Project, who had identified those in need and had organised a food parcel for 900 families.
The James Beattie Trust donation, along with others, allowed us to fund presents for 253 children in the Wolverhampton area (almost double the previous years’ total)
A small army of volunteers came to help with gift wrapping and then distribution to the homes of these families, helping to make their Christmas just that little bit more special.
We can’t thank you enough for this donation, which was even more needed in these difficult times.
