WITNEY: Shoppers are being urged to Give a Child a Gift this Christmas.

The festive toy appeal is being run by Marriotts Walk shopping centre until December 21.

Shoppers can donate an extra Christmas present for children at Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital and Helen & Douglas House Hospice.

Centre manager Lynne Shawyer said: “We’re so pleased to be launching our very first Christmas charity toy appeal and hope that locals will help to make Christmas that little bit brighter for hundreds of children from across Oxfordshire.

“Even the smallest of favours can make such a huge difference and each and every gift donated will go to a local life-limited child or young person over the festive season.”

You can donate at East and Dorothy Perkins in Marriotts Walk.
