Wanstead resident’s annual Christmas gift appeal for sick children


Wanstead resident Frank Charles is once again collecting toys and gifts for the children at Acorn Ward, Whipps Cross Hospital this Christmas.

“Ali at Wanstead Pharmacy (75–77 High Street) has agreed that unwrapped presents can be dropped off there. All donations must be new and suitable for ages 0 to 16 years please,” said Frank, whose annual appeal is now in its 17th consecutive year. The last day for dropping off presents at Wanstead Pharmacy will be Saturday 12 December, until 5pm.
