A HAMPER was delivered to Farnworth Fire Station after a kind-hearted business owner held a campaign.

Cheryl Marsden, owner of Cherly Werly Candy Bar in Harper Green Road, held a fundraiser asking people to donate money and messages of support to the firefighters over Christmas.

Their messages were then tagged onto an item of confectionary and placed in the hamper, which was delivered to the station.

Watch manager Carl Haslam said: "It’s always nice to see that the community are behind the work we do."
