Staff and clients at recruitment company Adecco Romford have collected gifts and toys for children in need this Christmas.

Some of the toys were given to Home-Start Havering, which offers free and confidential support to families with children under the age of five experiencing difficulties across the LHavering.

Paul Masterson, a trustee for the charity, said that the toys were all given to the children at their Christmas party.

Viddy Persaud, principal branch manager at Adecco Romford, South Street, said: “We also presented a large amount of toys donated mostly by two of our clients Costain and Associated Installations to the Salvation Army for its Christmas Present Appeal.”

The Salvation Army will hand out the gifts through Havering social services, Havering Disability Association, the Women’s Refuge and Family Mosaic.
