Hundreds of toys given to Stanborough Park Seventh-day Adventist Church annual donation
"Hundreds of toys adorned Stanborough Park Seventh-day Adventist Church in Garston on Saturday morning for the church’s annual toy service.
Each year for more than half a century generous church members have donated toys for needy local children who would otherwise go without presents at Christmas.
Organised by Pat Walton, the daughter of the event’s founder Alf Kelly, the toys are collected and distributed to needy families by social workers who know where the toys will find good homes.
According to Pat: "The social workers from various institutions who are working in the children’s sector are delighted with the toys that they take away from Stanborough Park Church to give to the families they are working with."
For many of the recipients it’s a lifeline as otherwise their children would be in danger of missing out on Christmas."
