Ashfield folk asked to back box appeal

ASHFIELD residents are once again being asked to donate a selection box to a Christmas appeal for sick or needy children.

Rob Bristol, of Sutton, has launched his annual Selection Box Appeal, which is supported by Ashfield Chad and Notts County FC.

He is asking readers to donate a selection box for children on the cancer ward at Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre, King’s Mill Hospital’s children’s ward, John Eastwood Hospice, Cauldwell House and the women’s domestic violence unit in Mansfield.

Donations can be collected at Ashfield Chad’s office on Outram Street in Sutton or at the Notts County supporters’ shop on Meadow Lane in Nottingham.

Said Rob: “As always, I extend my sincere thanks to everybody who has made this appeal a resounding success over the years it has been running.”
