Several children who are being supported by social care services in Stockport, Greater Manchester, have received donations of gifts that will provide them with much-needed comfort during the coronavirus pandemic.
Stockport Freemasons have been helping Stockport MBC Social Services and Stockport Police by providing donations of items for children who are currently in child protection plans.
The donations included a large selection of teddy bears for younger children, and a sizeable donation, made on behalf of the Cheshire Freemasons Charity, also covered the cost of more expensive items such as make-up, footballs and Netflix TV cards, for older children to receive.
DS Matt Tarr, of Stockport Police, said: “It’s fantastic to see local services coming together to support our most vulnerable within Stockport.
“The gifts the Freemasons have donated will go some way to making life a little brighter in what is a difficult time for many families across our borough.”
