The Royal Wootton Bassett & District Rotary Club said it had success again with this year's toy collection for Swindon Refuge.

For the second year running, the Club President Elect for Royal Wootton Bassett & District Rotary Club, Linda Locke, put out an appeal to the residents of Royal Wootton Bassett and surrounding villages for new and nearly new toys to give to the Swindon Refuge.

With Christmas approaching, members of the public were asked whether their children could sort through their toy boxes and pick out any they no longer wanted to make room for any gifts Santa might leave them on Christmas Day.

Linda is pictured above on two separate occasions in December, as the collection was so successful that she said she managed to fill two van loads with the donations she received.

She added: "Thanks to all who supported us in this venture. No child at the refuge should be without a present or two this Christmas."
