Caring Christmas Appeal

THE CITY’S roller derby team got their skates on to collect boxes full of food, wine and treats to donate to the Express Caring Christmas Appeal.

The appeal gives festive hampers packed full of goodies to pensioners nominated by you, our readers.

Wakey Wheeled Cats captain Kirsty Quinn said: “When we heard about the Caring Christmas Appeal we immediately wanted to get involved. It’s a great cause.”

Any schools, churches or community groups who wish to donate to the appeal should contact our newsdesk on 01924 375111. Donations of food or cash can also be handed in direct to our office on Southgate.

You can also still nominate someone to receive a hamper. The deadline is November 21, and please remember to watch out for sell-by dates on food. Send nominations to Caring Christmas Appeal, Express House, Southgate, Wakefield, WF1 1TE.
