If your train was delayed recently, there may have been a very good reason for it.
Staff at Network Rail’s offices in Stratford have been collecting hundreds of presents for the Recorder’s Toy Appeal, in conjunction with charity Community Links.
Teddy bears, board games and footballs were just some of the items to fill their office in Stratford Place over the past few weeks.
The gifts will help to fill the stockings of 4,000 underprivileged youngsters across the borough.
Andy Duffin, the route delivery director for Network Rail IP Anglia, said: “It is amazing the response of people when you pick a really good cause.
“Donating toys for those less fortunate than ourselves has touched people’s hearts and the volume of toys raised is overwhelming.”
