More than 800 gifts have been donated to this year’s Torfaen Santa Appeal.
Just over 200 children and young adults, who would otherwise miss out this Christmas, will receive a selection of gifts thanks to the generosity of the Torfaen public and local businesses.
Christmas hampers will also be delivered to young people and families that have been identified as being in financial hardship.
The Torfaen Santa Appeal aims to helps young people in Torfaen who are experiencing poverty or may not have contact with their families.
Executive Member for Children, Families & Communities, Councillor Fiona Cross said,
“Yet again our communities and businesses have been so generous, going out of their way to support this year’s Santa Appeal.
It’s heart-warming to know that these gifts and hampers will no doubt put smiles on our most vulnerable children’s faces. A huge thank you to all who have donated to this worthy cause.”
