SHOPPERS in Scarborough can spread the festive cheer to needy people in the area through the Give Big This Christmas campaign.

The Brunswick Centre launches its Giving Tree today, run in association with the Evening News and Scarborough Lions, and is asking people to come forward with gift donations.

Presents are now being accepted for all age groups and must be new and unwrapped.

Presents can be left at the tree as of today until December 4.

These will then be wrapped and distributed by the Lions to needing people in the area in time for Christmas..

Members from Scarborough Lions will be on hand at the Brunswick Shopping Centre from 11am-3pm today, and also on November 17, 18 and 19, to talk to people about the festive cause and the work of the charitable group.

Collections are also being taken at the Evening News office in Aberdeen Walk.
