Flexible help for families

FAMILIES in parts of Mansfield were given some extra cheer this Christmas thanks to toys and presents donated by staff at Barclaycard.

Family Action Children’s Centres at Pleasley Hill & Bull Farm and Ladybrook work with vulnerable families by providing emotional, practical and financial support for those in need.

Barclaycard responded to Family Action’s toy appeal to support the local children and families the charity supports.

Claire Meek, family action West Mansfield Children’s Centres’ project manager, said: “Christmas can pile the pressure on some families on a low income.

“But it is also a great opportunity for family members to share, care, have a good laugh and spend some real quality time together.”
