The centre organised the event to encourage parents to bring in their younger children. It also wants people to spread kindness by offering a gift for people that are less fortunate than themselves.
Donors can bring a gift to the business centre on Church Street or make a financial donation through a dedicated JustGiving page so that Barnardo’s Lancashire Services staff can purchase gifts.
The service supports people into their teenage years and young adulthood, and it is often the upper age category that struggles for gift donations.

It can be difficult to choose suitable gifts for the older age category, so the business centre has compiled a list of recommended items to assist supporters.
The public can help the appeal achieve its target by donating an unwrapped gift for a child, teenager or young adult at Cotton Court Business Centre reception between 8am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
