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.”
