THE ANGELS have issued an appeal for the public to help others have a very merry Christmas.
Sandwich Angels, that is.
Lockdown and Covid-19 tiers are putting pressure on everyone in the run up to the festive season.
But many would be facing a hard time anyway without the help of others.
So the Hyde-based charity has issued an appeal for people to donate gifts that would help struggling families, the elderly and the vulnerable.
Sandwich Angels have asked for a new, wrapped gift suitable for a girl or a boy from three months to 16-years-old for the children.
But not forgetting the adults who would feel the brunt of the struggles, they have also asked for people to donate adult gifts for elderly and single, lonely and vulnerable men and women.
And as they say: “Mums and dads of the children also deserve a little gift.”
A Sandwich Angels spokesman said: “Sadly many struggling families, as well as elderly and vulnerable people face a bleak Christmas.
“Mother Christmas Mrs Claus, the mythical wife of Santa the gift bringer, is known for caring for the reindeer and preparing toys with the elves and filling Santa’s sacks.
“This Christmas it is equal rights and Santa is driving Mrs Claus to deliver surprise gifts.”
Sandwich Angels deliver food boxes seven days a week for eight hours a day to those in need and the charity is not Government-funded and pays no wages.
All the volunteers do it from their hearts.
The deadline for gifts is December 11 and for security reasons, they have a device that sees through parcels.
If you wish to donate, text 07713 973640 for a drop off location or Sandwich Angels can collect.
