SOS for Santas to come on down for Toy Appeal

PUBLISHED: 17:42 04 October 2011 | UPDATED: 09:59 06 October 2011

Newham charity Community Links and the Newham Recorder send out a special alert this week...we need to find some Santas!

In just over a month, Links and ourselves will be launching our Christmas Toy Appeal for needy children.

So Links are keen to recruit aspiring volunteer Father Christmas’s to help with fundraising and children’s activities in December in connection with the appeal.

An ability to get on well with children is essential.

Full training and support given plus...suit and beard.

Santa’s will be required times during the week and at weekends. And such is the world we live in now that all applicants will be subject to an enhanced CRB police check.

If you are interested contact Kevin Jenkins, Community Links, 105 Barking Road, Canning Town, E16 4HQ,
