Help pub stuff sack with toys for children at refuge
HELP a child in need this Christmas by placing a present in the Santa Sack at the Rose And Crown pub.
The Ember Inns watering hole, in Louth Road, Scartho, is a drop-off point for the Grimsby and Cleethorpes Lions Club's appeal for toys for children staying at the women's refuge in North East Lincolnshire.
It is appealing for gifts suitable for children aged between three months and 15 years.
All you need to do is buy a toy, or find a good-quality second hand one, and wrap it with the age labelled, then place it in the festive sack in the pub's reception.

Manager Lisa Thompson, said they have chosen to support the small charity because it is low on donations.
She said: "We haven't done anything like this before and we are hoping it will take off.
"It is such a good cause and women and their children leave with nothing and a small gift could make a difference.
"It's good to give something back at this time of year and it is really important that we play our part in charity and get as many presents as possible in the sack."
Lisa said not to worry if you have run out of wrapping paper, the pub will even wrap it for you.
As reported, Women's Aid co-ordinator Gina Smith said donations of toys have dropped to such an extent, they were recently unable to provide for a child in need.
She said: "We are struggling for items, especially children's toys, because of the recession and high unemployment.
"It's hard for me when I can't supply items for women and their children. I have to say we haven't got the items available.
"I think we are a forgotten charity – so please remember us and donate."
