Local businesses and individuals donated thousands of pounds worth of toiletries, household essentials and selection boxes for the 2017 Smile Christmas Appeal.

Smile worked with a selection of local charities and community groups that needed extra support over Christmas to spread some Christmas cheer to their beneficiaries.
