More gifts in store for local children

The fantastic generosity shown by people means that there will now be hundreds of extra little smiles on Christmas morning.  
Councillor Eric Tatton-Kelly visited Atherton Godfrey's offices on Hallgate to collect the gifts and Doncaster Council's Children and Young People's Service will ensure that the gifts are distributed to children and families in need across the borough. 

Alistair Stokes, chair of DJL and a solicitor with the firm, said: "Without these donations many Doncaster children would have been disappointed on Christmas morning.

 "These gifts will really make a difference to children who have been subjected to suffering and hardship this year."

Katie Ogley, past president of JCI Doncaster said: "We have received fantastic support from local organisations and a number of companies have not only donated gifts but also offered the use of their website to promote the event on our behalf."

Kay Marriott, a partner at Atherton Godfrey, said: "There has been a fantastic response from the local community. It's good to know that people will rally round in times of need."

Cllr Tatton-Kelly, said: "I'd like to thank the huge support we've received from all those involved in this year's appeal."
