Thanks for gifts given to appeal

Thanks to everyone who has donated to this year’s Give A Gift campaign so far but we still need more presents.

This year the appeal is more important than ever, with many more families across the district struggling due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The appeal is being managed a little differently to allow us to comply with government guidelines regarding the lockdown and social distancing, so for this reason we have less collection points.
The Spalding Voice office is currently closed to the public but if you have a gift for the appeal you can knock and leave it on the doorstep.
You can also drop your gift off at Courtyard Footcare, Health and Beauty, 66 Swan Street, Spalding, 10am-3pm, Monday to Thursday.
Alternatively if you would like to order a present online, please arrange for it to be delivered to DGG Property Consultants, Welland Workspace, 10 Pinchbeck Road, Spalding, PE11 1QD.
The appeal helps ensure less fortunate children aged between three and 14 years old have a gift to open on
December 25.
Coun Harry Drury, who founded the campaign in 2011, said: “This year, due to the pandemic, we can only accept new toys and as usual we are unable to accept cuddly toys, make-up, toiletries or food and perishable items due to health and safety.
“The presents can be of any value to suit your budget, we are however unable to
accept money,” he added.
Gifts can be donated unwrapped at The Voice’s Goodison Road office at the Lincs Gateway Business Park, Spalding, until 5pm on Monday, December 14.
The office is usually manned from 9am to 5pm on weekdays. Please do not leave gifts at the door if the office is closed.
All presents will go to South Holland and Boston Child Services to distribute in time for Christmas.
