Hunt is on for Fenland cause to receive Santa’s suitcase from Co-operative Travel in March

STAFF at a travel agency are collecting a Santa’s suitcase – but they’re looking for a Fenland cause to donate the gifts to.

The Co-operative Travel’s new branch in the Westgate department store in March opened earlier this year.

Customers have been buying gifts in the store and donating nearly new items for the suitcase.

Now the team are looking for a charity or organisation that will benefit from receiving the toys.

Natasha Thatcher, manager of the Co-operative Travel March branch, said: “We opened in February this year and the Santa’s suitcase is something the other stores have done for the last few years.

“Want to donate the gifts to a group or an organisation in this area.”

If you know of a worthy cause in March or the surrounding villages that would benefit from the donation, write to this newspaper at 51 High Street, March, PE15 9JJ before Friday December 3.
