Argos donationStaff from the Sainsbury’s Argos store in Stukeley Meadows, have kindly donated £300 and toys to Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust’s charity, “Dreamdrops”, along with the Mayor of Huntingdon, Cllr Karl Webb who donated sensory toys to the appeal

Kirsty Luckham, Manager at Argos, presented Anne-Marie Hamilton, Chairman of “Dreamdrops” with the gifts and said: “Sainsbury’s Argos are running a nationwide campaign called Brightening a Million Christmas’ which involves all stores making donations to local organisations and charities in their communities.

“Our store decided that we would like to donate our budget of £300 to Dreamdrops. It’s a charity that we have supported in previous years and as our store has now permanently closed, it felt a fitting way to end our time in Huntingdon by helping out a local charity. We know that many of our colleagues and customers support this charity and we wanted to play our small part.”

Anne-Marie, Chairman of “Dreamdrops” said: “This is such a wonderful gesture from the staff at Sainsbury’s Argos. The amazing generosity of everyone will give the children that we support a wonderful Christmas Day, and we cannot thank them enough for their kind donation.”

Mayor of Huntingdon Cllr Karl Webb said: “Dreamdrops are my charity during my term of office, and we have collected some sensory toys to go with the donations collected over the past few months.  I was pleased to present Anne-Marie with these toys for the Christmas appeal.”
