Your generosity to our toy appeal astounds me!

What can I say about the response to this year’s Burnley Express Toy Appeal, apart from WOW!

A staggering 2,400 toys have been donated – smashing all previous records as kind-hearted Burnley folk once again stepped up to the plate.

In these austere times many charities are finding it increasingly difficult to win the public’s hearts and minds, but the toy appeal does not fall into that category.

More than 600 local children, who would have faced a bleak and presentless Christmas, will now be able to experience the joy of unwrapping gifts on Christmas Day. Generous Express readers have once again done themselves proud.

Thank you to you all.
