Presents donated as part of Operation Christmas Child

Over 320 presents for local young people who might otherwise receive nothing were donated by Oldham Council Workers
This was part of Operation Christmas Child campaign which involves people donaing a gift which is then given to a local child or young person who is part of a family in need.
Those taking part are given a tag with a first name, age and gender on it. They then buy a relevant gift for their young person which is presented in time for Christmas.
A spokesperson for the Council said “It goes without saying that thanks go to all those who have carefully selected and donated a gift"
“Many thanks to  our officers who organised the appeal and other staff for their kindness. On Christmas Day, those involved will have brought a smile to the face of a child in difficult circumstances.”
