Christmas cards were also written to accompany the boxes, which were filled to aid the national appeal.

Lou Allen, charity coordinator for Cromwell, said: “I am delighted with the 46 boxes we have collected.

“We have delivered them to Chatteris Parish Church where they will be collected for delivery to needy children all over the world.”
