KIND-HEARTED readers could help families enjoy an extra special Christmas next month.

Last year our readers generously donated more than 200 toys and a tonne of food which were given out to needy families across the area.

We are asking people to donate food - preserved produce such as tins rather than fresh - or a toy that is new or good-quality second-hand as part of our Toys and Tins appeal.

Donation points are: Tesco, County Lane, Warfield Oaktree Nursery, Bracknell Road, Warfield Kerith Community Church, Church Road, Bracknell Look In Cafe, Broadway, Bracknell Pinewood Cafe, Old Wokingham Road, Wokingham Duffy Londis, 7 Oakmede Place, Binfield Budgens, Hermitage Parade, Ascot Waitrose, London Road, Sunningdale Bracknell & Wokingham College, Church Road, Bracknell Bracknell News offices, South Hill Park, Ringmead
