HOMELESS people in Grantham received gifts in time for Christmas thanks to donations made by a Grantham nursery.

Instead of exchanging Christmas cards, staff at Headstart Nursery, in Dudley Road, made a donation of cash or food to Grantham Passage, which supports the homeless in the town.

Parents of children at the nursery were also invited to get involved, and the grand total raised was £117, along with donations of food and items such as clothing.

Nursery manager Nicola George said: “Parents were very generous and gave a lot.

“Ruby Stuckey from Grantham Passage came and collected the donations.

“We were very pleased to have raised so much, and Ruby was also really pleased.”
