Arran said: “After the success of previous years’ pledges of gifts, I knew it was something that we wanted to repeat.

"As a small and dynamic business, we appreciate the investment that people have made into our business and we felt it important to give back to good causes in the region.

"ALB North get involved with lots of charity and community projects, but with this one involving sick children it is something very close to our hearts, having young children ourselves.

“It makes us realise how lucky we are to have our health and that not everybody gets to be at home for Christmas with their families.

"Hopefully the toys and games we have donated will make these children's stay in hospital that much more comfortable and enjoyable.”
