Weston's firefighters are collecting Christmas gifts for local children in need ahead of the festive season.

Avon Fire & Rescue Service (AF&RS) crews from Bath, Bedminster, Weston-super-Mare, and Southmead are spearheading the initiative.

Now in its fourth year, it has already garnered over a hundred donations from the public and AF&RS staff.

Crews at Weston Fire Station said: "We’re delighted, once again, to work with our communities and organise a toy collection this Christmas.

"We recognise it’s been a difficult year for many, including the effects of the current Cost of Living Crisis, and we’re determined to do what we can do to support our local community."

Donations can be made any time at fire stations in Bath, Weston-super-Mare, Bedminster or Southmead, and will then be distributed to local families.
