We had a splendid Christmas party for BFF’s children and families in December. Santa made a guest appearance and there were gifts galore, thanks to the YorkMix and ASDA Monks Cross Toy Appeal. The two organisations recognised that the festive season can be a difficult time for many families, and that children can sometimes miss out on receiving presents, prompting them to launch a Toy Appeal in the run-up to Christmas. The donated toys were distributed amongst several York charities, BFF included. A big BFF thank you goes to YorkMix and ASDA for the appeal and to the people of York who donated so generously. Pictured here are Santa’s elves from YorkMix and ASDA delivering sackfulls of gifts to BFF.
