Nursery school children helped donate gifts to the Newham Recorder and Community Links Toy Appeal to make sure children less fortunate than them have presents this Christmas.
Children and teachers from Tendercubs nursery and pre-school in Forest Gate donated board games, toy cars, books and cuddly toys for the appeal on Friday, December 5.
They also made a huge Christmas card with a snowman on the front to wish all children a merry Christmas.
Thushari Chelvarooban, centre manager at the school, said: “I let the parents know and asked them would they like to do it. They said yes.
“I also put a notice up to say if they had good condition toys or even donate something new, and they started bringing them in.
“We had really quite a lot.”
She added: “I’m telling all people to donate to the Recorder because it’s a good cause.”

Olu Oyenigba, whose son Krystian Suliga-Oyenigba attends the nursery, said: “The children and their parents think that the Recorder Toy Appeal is a fantastic idea that helps children less fortunate than themselves to at least be able to enjoy Christmas in some way by having presents to share in the Christmas festivities.
“They wanted to make their own effort and contribution to the appeal and we will be arranging for the toys to be delivered.”
Tendercubs recently raised £350 for Save the Children, and is thinking of opening a holiday club so children have somewhere to go during half term.
