FOOD and toy parcels were made up by Worthing Salvation Army volunteers to give needy families a better Christmas.

Money for the annual project was raised by Worthing Rotary Club at the Christmas tree in Worthing town centre.

Ruth Justice, food parcels co-ordinator, said: “Once again, the Worthing Salvation Army has had the privilege of making up 250 food and toy parcels for needy families in the Worthing area referred by social services and health officials.

“We are very grateful to Worthing Rotary Club for its financial help with these and the generosity of the public in their donations of food and toys.

“Special mention should be made of Gary and his team of staff at Iceland in Goring Road, as well as Parker Hannifin, 1st Goring Scouts and Cubs, Sompting United Reformed Church, Aware Repairs and Worthing Food Bank for their amazing contributions of toys, food and Christmas goodies.

“The Salvation Army want to thank everyone who has helped to give needy families a better Christmas than they could have hoped for.”
