Wrexham Glyndwr University are supporting a Christmas ‘take a tag’ initiative to provide Christmas gifts for local children who may otherwise not receive any.

The university has teamed up with Flying Start Wrexham & Flintshire and is encouraging staff, students and members of the public to take a tag and donate a Christmas gift suitable for children aged 0 – 4 years old to put under the Christmas trees at either the Wrexham or Northop campus.

Director of Operations, Lynda Powell said: “We’re committed to supporting our local communities and are always looking for ways we can support community initiatives.

“The Flying Start programme supports families with children under the age of four living in some of the most disadvantaged areas of Wales affected by poverty.

“By running a ‘take a tag’ campaign, we’re hoping to spread some Christmas cheer and provide as many Christmas gifts for the Flying Start families as possible.”

Tags are available by the Christmas trees in the Wrexham & Northop campuses reception areas.

Anyone wishing to donate a gift should do so by December 14 to ensure the gifts can be taken to their recipients before Christmas.
