Family business helps to spread festive cheer

A FAMILY business is helping to spread a little festive cheer - by agreeing to be a gift drop-off point for the Salvation Army Christmas appeal. The charity is collecting presents for families and individuals across the area who will find the festive season a challenge.

Glenn Stoker, a partner at prestige and sports car dealership Furness Park, had no hesitations when he was asked to get involved. He bought an eight foot tree from a local business, arranged for it to be decorated and placed it in his showroom. Now, with Christmas day just a week away, Glenn - who also donated £500 so hard-working Salvation Army volunteers could enjoy a festive party together - is encouraging members fo the public to drop their gifts in. He said: "Christmas is a time for celebration and family but there is a reality to the festive season which is not quite as warming. "Many families find this time of year a real challenge emotionally and financially, and I think that those in a position to help should consider doing so. "We are delighted to be supporting the Salvation Army in a number of ways this Christmas as they go about their fantastic work." The showroom is open from 9am until 6pm every day and 11-5pm on Sundays.
