A HYDE nursery has proved a popular place to help the homeless after almost 50 boxes of essential items were donated to an appeal.
ABC Day Nursery on Onward Street has been a focal point for donations to the Manchester Street Angels Christmas homeless shoe box appeal.
Kind families of children that attend the early years setting and members of the public have handed over the boxes to the festive cause.
Manchester Street Angels asked for people to fill up a shoebox with both essential items and festive treats so that the thousands of homeless people all over the UK have something to open on Christmas day.
Items such as essential toiletries, warm clothing and food with a long shelf life were recommended, as well as a Christmas card with a message to the person receiving the gift.
Manager of ABC Day Nursery, Amy Wood, said: “We have been a collection point for this wonderful appeal for three years now but everyone has been so generous.
“Each year new faces are donating. It’s so lovely to see the kindness of the community coming together to help people.”
