Children from low income families who are most at need will receive free presents from Santa’s elves this year.
A campaign has been launched through Hatfield Town Council staff to support families that have been struggling this year due to the pandemic and it has already received a lot of support.
Manic Ceramics Hertford has donated the van to deliver the gifts and the food bank charity, the Wellfield Trust, has given £250 to the cause.
And after launching its Just Giving page, over £120 of its £500 target has been raised in less than a day.
The scheme will work through local schools, who will put forward nominees. Hatfield Town Council clerk Carrie Lloyd said: “We think that we are going to get very long lists so the more money or gifts we get the more Christmas cheer we can spread across Hatfield,”
