CHRISTMAS has officially arrived at a Halesowen accountancy firm with the launch of its 'Operation Santa 2019' appeal.

Nicklin LLP on Stourbridge Road is collecting items for Operation Santa - a local campaign which has been operating for more than 40 years.

Staff collect donations of new toys, gifts and food to help make Christmas special for children, young people and their families across the Dudley borough.

David Wright, Partner at Nicklin LLP said: “Without this appeal, many of the recipients would get nothing for Christmas, which is difficult to imagine for most of us.

“We are proud to be actively supporting this worthy cause and welcome any donations from staff, clients or the general public to our offices in Halesowen”.
