We’re asking our customers and friends to help us fill Santa’s suitcase with gift items for children, families and dogs in need in the local area.

“Central England Co-operative has organised this activity for many years and we are hoping to put smiles on even more faces this year.”

The appeal needs items for all age ranges – unfortunately, for health and safety reasons, they cannot accept second-hand or cuddly toys.
