A Dereham travel agent is collecting presents for children in care for its Christmas appeal.

Premier Travel has launched its annual gift collection for disadvantaged youngsters.

The branch will be running its Santa’s Sack campaign until December 18, following its launch on November 27.

People can donate new toys or gifts for children aged from newborn up to 16 years of age to fill the present sack in the store on Church Street.

The business is hoping to beat its previous total of 70 children’s gifts.

The branch will deliver the gifts to the Salvation Army, who will deliver them in time to make Christmas magical.

Branch manager Jo Peacock, said: “Christmas is such a special time of year, particularly for children, and we always try to contribute wherever we can to make the day extra special for those less fortunate.

“Any contributions, no matter how big or small, will be gratefully received and much appreciated.”
