A CHARITY helping vulnerable children in Southampton has been given a £3,740 boost.

More than 370 bags of toys were given to Barnardo’s Shirley Donation Centre to help raise money to support the most disadvantaged and vulnerable children in the south east.

The toys were donated during the six-week Argos toy exchange campaign, which has raised £560,000 across the UK.

It is the second time Argos has teamed up with Barnardo’s and those who donated were given vouchers to spend at the store.
