CARDWELLS Estate Agents in Bolton are collecting Christmas presents so disadvantaged children have a present under the tree on Christmas morning this year.

Their office on Institute Street in the town centre is an official drop off point for the Mission Christmas campaign.

Andrew Cardwell, Managing Director said: “We are trying to help out in a small way by collecting Christmas presents for children who may not otherwise receive something this year.

"Perhaps you could consider buying one extra present this year to donate?

"It could make the world of difference to one child’s Christmas. We understand that times are difficult and this is not feasible for many, but I just wanted to let you know that this charitable initiative was taking place, just in case you could help.”

If you can help and donate, presents should be new and unwrapped and with Cardwells by the 19th of December.
