THE Salvation Army’s Malton corps has launched its annual appeal for toy donations.

The Christmas Present Appeal 2018, which runs until Sunday, December 9, encourages people to donate gifts and toys for children and young people who otherwise would have little or nothing on Christmas morning.

Captain Matthew Bennett, of the Malton corps, said: “Thanks to the generosity of people in Malton and Norton last year, the Salvation Army, in partnership with local agencies, were able to collect and distribute to children and families who might otherwise have struggled at Christmas.”

Gifts can be dropped off at Malton Salvation Army, 40 Wood Street, Norton.
