Beverley’s ‘unbelievable’ generosity
Beverley restaurateur John Robinson says he’s been overwhelmed by people’s generosity in responding to his Christmas toys appeal. By Christmas Day, with more presents still coming in, he and his wife had distributed more than 500 presents to local children in foster care. “People’s generosity has been unbelievable and I just can’t thank people enough,” he told Beverley FM.
With drop-off points at Beverley Minster, St Mary’s Church and his own restaurant, Whites in North Bar Within, the gifts have been mounting up on a daily basis. “We’ve also been able to distribute gifts to families who have been rehoused as a result of things like domestic violence and had been left without anything at Christmas,” he said.
