Lowestoft Christmas present wrapping session success

More than 200 Christmas presents were wrapped for free in Lowestoft town centre on Saturday.

For six hours volunteers from Lowestoft and District Christians Together wrapped presents for free from a stall outside the Britten Centre.

Among the small army of gifts that were wrapped by 15 volunteers were a dinner service, a computer printer, dressing gowns, chocolate and computer games.

It was the third year in a row that the free gift wrapping session has been held in the town by the Christian group, which handed out information on churches as the presents were wrapped.

Saturday's event saw the largest amount of presents wrapped yet in the three years of the festive event.
