You can help put a smile on the faces of sick children this Christmas by donating toys and unwanted Christmas gifts to our appeal.

The Reporter has teamed up with chYps, a Dartford-based charity providing hospice at home care for children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions in Kent and Bexley.

To spread some festive cheer, we are looking for readers to drop off new toys, or unwanted gifts, at a number of stores across Dartford and Gravesham before and after Christmas.

A significant part of chYps’ work is to support children who will likely die before adulthood.

Director of fundraising, Rachel Holweger, said: “What we really need is more donations and hopefully they will come as a result of this amazing coverage.”

You can drop your festive treats into Bennett and Brown, Windmill Street, Gravesend; Dartford Greek Taverna and Maple Lead Kitchens and Bedrooms, in Hythe Street, Dartford; Practical Car and Van Rental, The Brent, Dartford; The Clarendon Royal Hotel, Royal Pier Road, Gravesend, and TownCentric, St George’s Square, Gravesend.

Alternatively, donate to chYps, who must raise £1.47million each year, at chyps.org.
