Goulds garden centre in?Littlemoor?Road, Weymouth is once again supporting the Dorset Echo Toy Appeal and thanks to their brand new bin – they are now accepting donations.

Garden Centre Director, Anthony Gould said: ?We are delighted to once again to be able to support the Dorset Echo?s Toy appeal. It?s a fantastic cause and along with the Echo we really would encourage as many people as possible to donate.

“Please take a moment to buy an extra gift when you?re out Christmas shopping this year. Asking your children to donate a toy is also a great way of teaching them to think about people less fortunate than themselves.

“Every child should wake up on Christmas day with a smile on their face, knowing that there are people out there who care for them – so please give generously.”

Goulds is a long-established, proudly independent local family business that employs more than 140 local people.

They stock more than 20,000 product lines, sourced from in excess of 300 different suppliers selling a broad range of plants, horticultural stock, gifts, greeting cards, indoor oak furniture, clothing, kitchenware and food which includes a new range of wines and ales from over a dozen local breweries.

The Toy Appeal is now in it’s 18th year and toys donated to Goulds will be given to children who would otherwise not get a visit from Father Christmas this year.

Goulds is not the only store to have a bin and donations are being accepted at more than 20 stores across the county – so keep your eyes peeled.

As well as public donations, businesses have also been generously donating ?100 to help the echo buy gifts and vouchers.

Echo promotions manager Debbie Hellaby said: ?Without the support of our readers and local businesses we would not be able to help to put smiles on all those families faces at Christmas, so thank you.?
