More than 14,000 needy kids to get Christmas presents thanks to daily

More than 14,000 needy children will receive gifts this Christmas thanks to a regional daily.

The Birmingham Mail has thanked readers who contributed to its ‘Brumwish’ drive to get toys, games and goodies to as many vulnerable young people as possible.

The campaign was relaunched last month following its initial success ahead of Christmas 2020.

The appeal has been run in conjunction with campaign group Toys4Birmingham.
