Hundreds of toys have been donated to a children’s charity store in St Albans to support vulnerable young people.
Access Self Storage St Albans and The Children’s Society have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the local community and businesses, which helped make this year’s Christmas toy appeal a huge success.
