'Big thank you to everyone who made the south Birmingham toy appeal such a success'

THE ORGANISERS of this year’s south Birmingham toy appeal want to say a big thank you to everyone who donated gifts for children who would otherwise be waking up on Christmas morning with nothing.

The drive – launched last month – was organised by Gemma Cartwright MBE and Andy Cartwright from Pride of Longbridge, Tony Geraghty Butchers and Sainsbury’s Longbridge.

Tony Geraghty butchers also donated each Christmas Day hamper of beef, turkey, sausage and bacon and Joanne paid for the veg to complete the meal.

Gemma added: “Thank you to all the volunteers that delivered who sorted the toys and more, thanks also to Sainsbury’s Longbridge, Fit 4 Sport and Longbridge Security.

“I’m so proud of the community that we live in – it always makes a big difference to those living in it through kindness and generosity.”
