A charity toy appeal has been launched at Lichfield Cathedral.
The initiative will support The Gingerbread Centre – a charity providing support to families at risk of becoming homeless.
The cathedral is asking shoppers to pick up an extra toy and donate it at one of the two carol concerts for shoppers taking place at midday and 4pm on Saturday (December 19).
The Very Revd Adrian Dorber, Dean of Lichfield, said: “The Gingerbread Centre does crucial work to support vulnerable families in the area.
“They provide around-the-clock care and offer great facilities including a communal playroom where families can interact in a safe environment.
“If you’re able to donate a toy for a child in need this Christmas, please consider donating to this appeal.”
Toys, suitable for newborns up to 18-year-olds, can also be dropped off at the Cathedral Reception office between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.
