Earlier this month, Norfolk County Council's children services team asked shopper and library members to buy a small gift or book for the county's children who are living in care.

Now, after receiving dozens of donations, more than 100 young people aged 16 and 17 years old will be receiving a bag filled with gifts including sweet treats, toiletries and a Christmas present.

John Fisher, NCC cabinet member for children's service said: "We have been totally overwhelmed with the generosity of for this year's Christmas Collection.

"Our mission was to ensure that these young people in care feel included this Christmas.
