A BARNSLEY MP has pledged her support to a toy bank that will help underprivileged children this Christmas.

Barnsley East MP, Stephanie Peacock will support the Barnsley Christmas Toy Appeal which was created by barber Tony Batty and his friend Liam Hardcastle.

The appeal will collect toys for children across the borough and Stephanie made a donation to the appeal at Tesco in Hoyland.

She said: “This year has been so challenging for local families, and I’m pleased I had the opportunity to make a donation to the Christmas toy appeal - this is a great way to support local families here in Barnsley at this incredibly difficult time.”
