Mayor of Newham Sir Robin Wales has added his support to our Christmas Toy Appeal (again).

Sir Robin donated a selection of gifts to the annual appeal, run in partnership with Canning town charity Community Links.

Paula Blake and helpers from Community Links visited the council’s Newham Dockside offices to collect the toys from the Mayor.

“I am delighted to once again be able to do my bit to support this very worthwhile appeal, which is celebrating its 40th year,” he said.

“This is a very busy time of year but I encourage everyone to spare a thought for those children who without this appeal will have no gifts this Christmas.

“It doesn’t take much to add one more toy to the list when buying gifts for your loved ones. Any support residents or businesses can offer the appeal will be welcome.”
