Daventry’s Tesco supermarket on New Street indulged in a little festive spirit, donating 300 toys to charity.

The toys were shared between a number of key charities in the county, including Northamptonshire’s Women’s Aid, Nene Valley Christian Women’s Refuge, Brompton Housing Association and the Vineyard Community Church in Daventry.

The toys were collected over several weeks by customers and members of staff. Father Christmas himself went along to see the toys donated to representatives from the charities at a brief ceremony.

A spokesperson for Tesco said: “We would like to thank our customers for their generosity in donating so many toys, helping us to give children a better Christmas.

“The toys and games will be going to needy children in the community.”
