On a more local level, I would like to personally thank all those who have contributed to this years Toys and Tins Appeal.  Whether it's been through the giving of time to wrap presents and pack the Food Hampers / christmas-present-appeal-2009Parcels or through the donation of money, toys and gifts or food items, we have been absolutely overwhelmed at people's generosity and desire to help.  I believe it is a testament to everyone involved that we have been able to help so many people this year

To give you an indication, we have catered for approximately 226 adults, 267 children and distributed around 176 Food Hampers / Parcels.  It has been an absolute pleasure for us to get involved in what we know is an extremely successful campaign, particularly in Great Yarmouth and Norfolk and I have been encouraged so much by people's willingness to help those in need and less fortunate than them.  One donation that specifically touched many of us working on this campaign was when a young girl came in and donated £7.;50 of her spending money as she knew there were people who were in need.  This was perhaps the most poignant moment of all.  A real opportunity for the people of Great Yarmouth to join together as a community and support one another.  Seeing the smile on people's faces and the sign of relief that Christmas may just be that little easier for them, made all the hard work and effort worthwhile.  We are already looking forward to an even bigger and better Toys and Tins Appeal next year
