Another Successful Christmas Magic Appeal Delivered in 2021

Dalton Together would like to reach out to our community and partners thanking everyone who were a part of our Christmas Magic Appeal for 2021. “Together we make good things happen”.

With the help of Greenfields Family Centre, the financial support from the Dalton Ward Cllrs, TSL Kirklees Volunteering and Syngenta plus everybody who kindly donated additional items for residents/families, we have managed to deliver another successful Christmas appeal which has made a huge difference to families and individuals across the Dalton Ward. A special thank you goes out to Lesley Stephenson at Greenfields for overseeing the whole operation again, without her all of this wouldn’t have been possible.
