The team at Hays Travel is asking people to pop into one of their branches and donate new, unwrapped items in aid of Norfolk-based charity Break.

They are looking for toys, gift sets, toiletries, household goods, stationery items and books.

Branch manager of Hays Travel Aylsham and appeal co-ordinator, Jo Dobbie said: 'I initially started Santa's Sleigh at the Aylsham branch, and then got Sheringham on board with it too.

'This year our new Hays Travel branches in Cromer, Fakenham and Downham Market are also running the appeal.'
