The Salvation Army and Social Services acted as a confidential go-between to ensure donated presents reached needy families in the area.

Toys were collected at Gracious Street Methodist Church and at five Twinkles Nursery Schools in Knaresborough, Boston Spa, Wetherby, Leeds Centre and Leeds White Rose.

Kirstie Stericker at Twinkles said: ”We are very happy once again to help with the Rotary initiative.”
