Lincolnshire Co-op travel staff are asking people to lend the elves a hand this Christmas and donate a gift for local charities.

All ten travel branches are hoping to fill up Santa’s suitcases with presents to help make less fortunate children across the county have a merry Christmas.

During November and December people are encouraged to pop in and donate a stocking filler – it doesn’t matter how big or small, just that the gift is unwrapped and new.

The presents will then be delivered to good causes in time for Christmas.

In Louth gifts will be donated to St Andrew’s Children’s Hospice in Grimsby and 
gifts taken in at the Grimsby Branch will be donated to Women’s Aid, an organisation which supports abused women and children.

“We’ve donated hundreds of presents to local charities in the last few years and we’re hoping this year’s going to be just as successful,” said Lincolnshire Co-op Travel Manager Wayne Dennett.

“All of the charities we’re supporting do fantastic work and our Santa’s suitcase collections are a great way of giving something back to the local community and making Christmas extra special for others.”
