Helen Owen, churchwarden at St John’s Sewerby Church, said: “We are looking for donations food including basics and, of course, Christmas food (non perishable).

“We also need gifts for all ages, toys, games, books and toiletries.

“I contacted Martongate School. They were very enthusiastic and helped us to structure the project.”
