John evokes Xmas spirit

NEARLY 300 children in Annandale and Eskdale are in for a treat this Christmas thanks to the efforts of an Annan man.

John Patterson’s festive fundraiser is now complete for 2021 and this year he managed to raise enough to buy 290 presents and selections boxes for youngsters.

He thanked everyone who donated for their generosity and Tesco for their support and donations. John has been working with Dumfries and Galloway Council’s social services team to make sure the presents get to those who need them most

He said: “The whole community deserves a mention as to make all these kids get a visit from Santa £4500 will get spent and without the public this wouldn’t happen.”
