A CUDWORTH teen who set up a toy donation programme to help those in need across the borough this Christmas is appealing to residents for donations.

Nicole Robinson, 18, of Newland Avenue in Cudworth, set up the page ‘Share with Care’ earlier this month with her friend Stacey Dixon in a bid to help struggling families across Barnsley.

She said: “The idea is that we’re buying new toys, as well as donating our own toys, and gifting them to families in need.

“We’ve also been making some hampers up with tins and some food for the homeless and the elderly - we want to make sure that no one goes without this Christmas.”

The pair started donating the toys and hampers last week, and Nicole says that the response from those who they’ve been supporting has been fantastic.

“We started this about a week ago and the support from everyone has been brilliant so far,” she added.

“We’ve delivered some of the presents and some people have broken down crying - no one should have to struggle at Christmas.

“We’re asking for toys, food and clothes so we can create the hampers and the presents for everyone.”
