Samantha said: “I’m known as the Usborne book lady. I have set up a justgiving page to help raise money to buy new Christmas presents for local children in the Ashfield area.
"It’s been a really tough year for lots of people during the pandemic, and now even more than ever children and families are working with children's centres to gain support and get help through these difficult times
“We would really like to raise as much money as we can to give those children a magical Christmas and a gift from Santa.”Samantha is calling on people to donate to and share her justgiving page. She says any help given by companies, football teams, individuals will all receive recognition, and all donations are “gratefully received,” she said.
She also wanted to highlight to Chad readers a special fundraising ‘Christmas Extravaganza,’ which is being held from 10am to 1pm, at the Summer House Children’s Centre in Sutton, on Saturday, October 30.
Amongst the Christmas themed fun day, there will be an Usborne book stall, which will also donate items and hold a raffle to help with the Christmas present fundraising.
