A CHRISTMAS gift campaign aims to provide some extra festive sparkle for hundreds of local children.

Organisers of the Wirral Council campaign hope to repeat the success of last year's and are urging our readers to donate different types of gifts to ensure presents are available for vulnerable children of all ages - from babies up to 16 year olds.

Suggested donation ideas are:

  • Toys for 0-12 year olds
  • Pyjamas for 0-16 year olds
  • Gifts for teenagers such as toiletries, perfume, aftershave, make-up, socks and costume jewellery
  • Selection boxes
  • One4All gift cards (available online and from Post Offices)
  • Medium and large Christmas gift bags

Public drop-off points for new and unwrapped donations will remain open until Friday, December 17 (9am-5pm, Mon-Fri) and are at:

  • The Floral Pavilion, Marine Promenade, New Brighton, CH45 2JS
  • Brassey Gardens Children’s Centre, 2 Brassey St, Birkenhead, CH41 8DA
  • Bromborough Children’s Centre, Gratrix Road Bromborough, CH62 7BW
