Northamptonshire residents, this month, have the opportunity to brighten the Christmases of families impacted by domestic abuse.

The Northamptonshire Domestic Abuse Service (NDAS) has issued an appeal to the public to support them this Christmas with the gift of giving.

NDAS Business Manager, Zoë Tatham, said: "We have asked all the children in our refuge what they would like from Santa and all of these toys have been put onto our Amazon Wishlist for anyone that would like to play Santa for them this year.
