Olympic gold medallist Bradley Wiggins has helped put the wheels in motion for the Citizen’s Tins and Toys Campaign.
Chorley-based cyclist Bradley, who scooped two gold medals at the Beijing Olympics, says he is delighted to support the appeal.
He said: “Any campaign, such as the Tins and Toys, is important, especially at Christmas. I grew up on a council estate in London and that kind of thing obviously went on, even though, as a child, you don’t realise it.”
Our campaign aims to make a real difference to families in crisis, those unfortunate enough to be affected by domestic abuse.
The Citizen is collecting new toys and essential goods for Fylde Coast Women's Aid, which operates two refuges covering the boroughs of Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre.
All we ask is that gifts are new and unwrapped, and tins and foods are within their sell-by date. To make a donation call in to our offices at 13-13A, Clifton Street, Blackpool, during office hours.
