A TOY appeal that helps ensure children in Ellesmere Port receive a gift at Christmas has just launched for 2023. 

Stanlaw Abbey Business Centre is operated via Stanlaw Abbey Development Trust, a registered charity.

Profits from the business centre are distributed within the local community of Ellesmere Port. 

This is done through supporting front-line organisations who provide vital services to those in need. 

Each year Stanlaw Abbey organise a Christmas Toy Appeal to support vulnerable and low-income families within Ellesmere Port.

Working with family intervention workers, social workers, disability teams, schools and women’s refuges, the appeal is provided with a list of families who need help to ensure that their children receive a gift at Christmas. 

Children of all ages, up to 18 years-old are included in the appeal.

Since 2014 the company have had over 8,000 presents donated by the public helping to provide presents to children who may otherwise not have received one at Christmas.

Carole Jones, one of the administrators at Stanlaw, said: "As a small charity ourselves we couldn’t achieve what we do without the help and support of the local community.

"Together we are able to bring some happiness to the families and children we have supported."
