Once again our neighbour Helen Druiff is making up gift bags for children and young people in care who attend Cambridge Regional College. She says:

"Christmas can often be a difficult time of year for our vulnerable young people, especially if they are living in a hostel and/or have no family to share Christmas with. Therefore, we would like to give them something special to open. You could give a cash donations, which we would then use to buy gift vouchers that could be spent on toiletries, food or phone credit, see 9. below.

If you prefer, please donate any of the items on the list below. Please leave you gifts in the clear plastic box by my front door at 43 Highfield Avenue. Thank you so much for your support once again."

Please make your donations by Sunday 26th November to allow time to make up the gift bags and deliver to students before they break up for the Christmas break. You can contact Helen if you'd like to make a cash gift.

1. Sweets
