There are just a few days left to join festive Rotary appeals and help make Christmas that little bit better for vulnerable children.

The Rotary Clubs of Stamford St Martin’s and Uppingham are well into their annual Christmas tree appeals and both have seen a great response so far.

People have been donating presents at collection points and there are now just a few days left before they are given out to youngsters.

Stamford Rotarian Roger Adams said: “The club continues to be amazed by the kindness and generosity of the public and host businesses who have actively supported the project.”

People can pick a label with the age and gender of a child in need from a Christmas tree. They are asked to buy a gift worth £5 to £10, wrap it and put it back under the tree.

The Stamford club will collect presents on Wednesday. Labels can be picked up at: Cummins Generator Technologies, Barnack Road, Stamford; Curves of Stamford, Stamford Walk; Grasmere Farms, High Street, Stamford; Sainsbury’s, Ryhall Road, Stamford; Sheep Market Surgery, Ryhall Road, Stamford; St Gilbert’s Primary School, Foundry Road, Stamford; The Point of Health, Casterton Road, Stamford; Thurlby Primary School, Lawrance Park, Crown Lane; Thurlby Methodist Church, High Street; The Crown Inn, Main Street, Great Casterton; Smithers Purslow, Spring Lane, Glaston; The Horse and Jockey pub, St Mary’s Road, Manton; The Bluebell Inn, Woodgate, Helpston; and in Peterborough; Aebi Schmidt UK Ltd; Caterpillar/Perkins; Peterborough City Hospital Ambulance Station; Nenegate School; Phoenix School; Royal Haskoning DHV; and Voyager Academy.
