In the lead up to Christmas we appealed for toys and other items to be given as gifts to children of families who needed some help over Christmas.

The response from the people of Saffron Walden was amazing enabling us to wrap up 141 parcels. On behalf of the Salvation

Army and the families concerned, I want to say a sincere thank you to those who gave so generously.

A huge thank you too to the staff of the Tourist Information Centre, who provided a collection point and so willingly worked with us during the appeal.
