Chester’s Toy Appeal helps many local families

As a result of Chester’s Toy Appeal, organised by Chesterfield FC, more than 120 families were provided with toys which were wrapped up and opened on Christmas Day by children who would otherwise have missed out. 

Sponsored by CRS Accident Repair, the appeal saw local businesses and individuals kindly donate new toys which were distributed via charities and to those who made successful applications. 

Chesterfield’s marketing manager, Bridget Ball, said: “It is heart-warming to know that we have been able to help so many families at such an important time of the year.

“It was a real community effort. The success of the appeal hinged on the generosity of those companies and individuals who donated toys – together with the support of CRS Accident Repair – and I would like to thank everyone who helped.”
