Prestonians are being asked to buy an extra Christmas present this year to help one in five Lancashire children who live in poverty.Advertisement
Sainsbury’s at Deepdale has announced it is a drop off point for any donated presents.
It will also play host to Santa on Saturday 5 December from 1.30pm to 4.30pm.
Santa is £3 for each child to see and they receive a gift.
All money raised goes to support Cash for Kids.
Mission Christmas is part of Rock FM’s Cash for Kids charity.
Store manager at Sainsbury’s Preston, Ian Hampshire, said: “We’ve had an excellent year so far supporting Cash for Kids.
“Our customers and colleagues have got involved with a number of fundraising activities throughout the year.
“Santa visiting the store on December 5 with his reindeer is going to be a fantastic day and we would like to invite everyone down to the store to come and meet them.”
