These bags of food and toys are the result of the hard work and generosity of parishioners at St Peter Apostle church, Leamington.

They spent time at Tesco, appealing for food donations and collected 55 parcels for the Leamington food bank.

Toys have also ben donated to the appeal, supplied by parents and children at St Peter’s Catholic Primary School.

Volunteers have wrapped all the items, which will provide presents for 90 children.

Chocolates and a Christmas card has also been delivered to housebound parishioners.

Parish priest of St Peter Apostle church, Fr John Cross, said: “It has been a joy to see the range of people who have helped with the Christmas appeals this year and everyone who has been involved is looking forward to getting together again next Christmas.”
