A CHRISTMAS present collection for children in need will launch at Oxford's Sainsbury's superstore today.

Sleigh2Give is Play2Give's festive campaign, which invites supporters to donate gifts to children who might not otherwise receive presents this year.

The Didcot-based charity, founded by Andrew Baker, has drop-off points at several locations across Oxfordshire.
