One-off donation of £500 to go towards this year's 25th Didcot Christmas Street Fair.
Newbury Building Society once again joined forces with Swift Couriers as part of its Christmas Toy Appeal, with three of its branches – Newbury, Thatcham and Hungerford – acting as designated gift drop-off points throughout December.
The appeal, which has been running since 2006, is designed to give presents and bring a smile to disadvantaged children within West Berkshire. A range of local businesses volunteer as a drop-off point throughout December to help encourage the public to donate a toy.
The Society’s Newbury branch was honoured to be selected as the distribution central point for 2017, and welcomed families who collected presents for their children ahead of Christmas Day.
Jane Bosher, Senior Office Manager for Newbury Building Society’s Newbury, Thatcham and Hungerford branches said: “The Swift Couriers Toy Appeal was a great success again with hundreds of presents being bought into the branches. We received a huge variety of age group gifts which was great, as it covered all areas of life, which meant no one was left out. The general public have been so generous and it was lovely to see the amount of children that parents bought in with gifts telling their own that it is for children that are less fortunate.”
