MP praises generosity of locals

Anne-Marie Trevelyan MP has praised the generosity of local people once more, who have given generously in her annual “One More Toy” Christmas appeal.  The drive encourages people to buy one more toy to donate to the Salvation Army, who then distribute the toys to children in care or in families who are struggling.

The MP, who has been running the appeal for eight years, has been encouraging people to deliver toys to her Berwick or Alnwick offices, and has now delivered them to the Salvation Army in Berwick, who will distribute them to families in need across Northumberland. She was met by Lieutenant Andrew Manley of Berwick Salvation Army.

Anne-Marie said: “I am always amazed by the generosity and kindness of people who have supported my Christmas Toy Appeals.  This is the eighth year that I have run this appeal and I would like to thank everyone who has made a donation to it.  This is a difficult time for many people, particularly children in our poorest families or who are in care.  I know that Andrew and his staff at Berwick Salvation Army will find homes for all of these toys and gifts.”
