There are just two days left for generous readers to donate to our Toys and Tins Appeal.

We are asking people to give food - preserved produce such as tins rather than fresh - or a toy that is new or good-quality second-hand to help families enjoy an extra special Christmas.

Andy Jackson, from the Kerith Community Church, said: "We've started having things come through which is good but we really want people to bring in more.
