Council staff and partner organisations have generously supported a Christmas appeal by Home-Start Essex, a Charity which supports families across the Maldon District.

Staff donated Christmas gifts for children whose families would benefit enormously from having an extra gift to be able to give to their children and also for some of the parents who may receive very little for themselves.

Cllr Bass, Chairman of Maldon Dstrict said “I am delighted to be able to present these gifts which our staff and partners have donated to local families that need some extra help this Christmas”
