Lincolnshire Today donates toys for children in need

Bridge Church Lincoln today received a donation of toys and other gifts from Lincolnshire Today for their Christmas Sacks Appeal. The initiative sees children from backgrounds of poor financial stability or with other problems able supplied with Christmas gifts they might otherwise not receive.

“We receive referrals from social workers, family support workers, other professionals who work with people who will be struggling financially to provide for themselves and/or their families this Christmas. We then arrange for the workers or the families to come and choose some items for themselves and their children on a week in December. All the items have been donated from all over the county – we are always amazed at how generous people are.”

Now in its thirteenth year, the charity has changed its methods due to COVID-19 but still sees gifts sent out to those who need it.

Delivering the gifts today, Angie Cooper, Director at Lincolnshire Today, said, “We support several charities each year, and we always try to spare a thought for the less fortunate around Christmas. Knowing how best to help isn’t always easy, but Bridge Church receive referrals from social workers, so we felt confident in knowing they would make sure these gifts make their way to the children who need them most. We’re thrilled to be supporting such a good cause.”
