A KIND-HEARTED man donated gifts to vulnerable children across Radcliffe.

Brent Pinder also dressed as Santa in the run-up to Christmas to help collect money for Radcliffe Primary Care Centre.

Residents dropped off toys at the Barley Suite in the Primary Care Centre for newborn children as well as those up to the age of 17.

The appeal was made after radio station Key 103 said they were unable to provide gifts for the centre via their Cash for Kids Christmas scheme due to over-demand.

Mr Pinder, who donated baby rattles, said: "There are still families struggling in Radcliffe.

"I was able to raise £60 by dressing as Santa, and collected around £150 worth of toys.

"The healthcare professionals were really appreciative.

"It's great to show unity at a time when homelessness is becoming the norm.

"In this rich economy this is very wrong, so we need to lend those who are struggling a helping hand."
