The team at Hays Travel is asking people to pop into one of their branches and donate new, unwrapped items in aid of Norfolk-based charity Break.

They are looking for toys, gift sets, toiletries, household goods, stationery items and books.

Branch manager of Hays Travel Aylsham and appeal co-ordinator, Jo Dobbie said: “I initially started Santa’s Sleigh at the Aylsham branch, and then got Sheringham on board with it too.

“This year our new Hays Travel branches in Cromer, Fakenham and Downham Market are also running the appeal.”

Danielle Gravestock, senior fundraising officer for Break, which supports young people in care, children with disabilities and families, said: “These gifts really do make a difference to the children and young people we support.”
