Pub’s Christmas gift appeal will benefit underprivileged children

Christmas gift appeal at Winter Stream Farm, Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

A pub/restaurant in Bradley Stoke is hoping to put smiles on the faces of deprived children through a Christmas gift appeal.

Donna Telford, manager of Winter Stream Farm on Old Gloucester Road, has put gift tags with the names and ages of underprivileged children in the local area on a Christmas tree in the car park of the pub and is asking customers to take a tag and return with an appropriate gift-wrapped present.

Social services will then collect the gifts and distribute them in time for Christmas.

Donna, who has run the gift appeal for more than ten years at various establishments she has managed, said:

“Over the years, lots of guests have told me they have wanted to help, but didn’t know how, so we have created a drop-off point for people wishing to donate a gift.”

The age range of the children who will benefit from the appeal is from birth to 16. Gifts need to be handed in at the pub by Thursday 18th December.
