KIND-HEARTED people are being asked to drop into an Exmouth store armed with gifts to give to children this Christmas.
Members of the public are invited to drop into Superdrug, in the Magnolia Centre, to leave a gift for children, aged 0-16, as part of The Salvation Army's Christmas Present appeal.
The presents will then be distributed to referred children and families in the area through the Salvation Army's networks, local groups and social services.
Captain Steven Watson, East Devon's Salvation Army Officer, said millions of children and young people have benefited from the gifts donated over many years.

A team of volunteers will then ensure it reaches a needy child or young person in the East Devon area.
Mr Watson added: "Many families linked with local partner agencies such as single-parent support networks and family centres have come to rely on the toys donated through The Salvation Army's annual gift appeal.
"For children and young people we need everything, from soft and educational toys for the very youngest, to CDs, games and toys and accessories for older children.
"We believe every child deserves a new gift at Christmas, and are therefore unable to take used or second hand items for the Christmas Present Appeal.
