Prestonians are being asked to buy an extra Christmas present this year to help one in five Lancashire children who live in poverty.


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.”
