With your help we've managed to distribute around 600 presents to those in need this Christmas, for our Christmas Present appeal in association with Archways Real Estate.
We're asking the people and businesses of Northampton to donate presents to families and older people in need this Christmas so everyone can have a Christmas present this year.
You can drop off presents at the locations below (No food or used toys), we are working with community partners to distribute the presents across the town to those in need.
