Over 70 gifts donated to children across Flintshire and Wrexham as part of “Take a tag’ scheme
More than 70 gifts for children across Flintshire and Wrexham have have been donated as part of Wrexham Glyndŵr University’s ‘Take a Tag’ initiative.
The university teamed up with Flying Start Wrexham & Flintshire to encourage staff, students and members of the public to participate in the scheme, where donors took a tag and donated a Christmas gift suitable for children up to the age of four.
The presents were put under the Christmas trees at the university’s Wrexham and Northop campuses before being distributed to Flying Start centres. They were then given to children who may not have otherwise received a gift.
In total 73 gifts were donated across the university campuses, with two Animal Science students in Northop, Claire Phoenix and Aimee Rutherford, also raising £120 throughout the year to help purchase gifts.
Director of Operations, Lynda Powell said: “The Flying Start programme is there to support families in some of the most disadvantaged areas of our communities.
“We are delighted that so many staff, students and visitors to our campuses pitched in to support this year’s Christmas appeal and that dozens of gifts will be given out across Wrexham and Flintshire as a result.
“I’d like to thank everyone who took part, and to wish everyone at Flying Start and each family they work with a very Happy Christmas.”
