Staff at the Lincolnshire Co-op Travel agency in Sleaford have been collecting toys and other items to brighten up children’s lives this Christmas.

The business traditionally collects new toys and gifts to donate to Homestart in Sleaford to give to young families that may need support.

Branch manager Paul Herring said: “We do a collection every year for Homestart to help the less fortunate families in the area.

“People are so nice, we get so much every year.

“It is a real mixture. We’ve got toys, games, CDs, smellies, DVDs and gloves.”
