YOUNGSTERS from Southampton’s Foundry Lane Primary School Choir will perform at the poignant launch of a city-wide Christmas campaign.

The official ceremony of the Southampton Voluntary Services (SVS) Toy Appeal takes place at Southampton Civic Centre on Tuesday, December 4. More acts are to be announced.

The Daily Echo backed appeal calls on businesses, schools, community groups and residents to dig deep to ensure vulnerable  children do get a gift this year.

Those who take part are asked to buy a suitable present up to the value of £10. People who have supported the appeal will be invited to the launch event.

Call Jacqui Honeywell as soon as possible on 023 8021 6041 or email toyappeal@southampton for more information.
