St Margaret's Church wants people to give items for needy children as part of Operation Christmas Child.

A spokesperson for the St Margaret's said: "This year we would like to support the appeal in a different way by donating the following items as requested by the Exeter organisers."

Items wanted include soap, facecloths; toothpastes, small tennis balls, toy cars for boys, hair clips, slides and jewellery for girls and colouring books to fit into the shoebox.

The church would also like felt tip and coloured pencils, small puzzles, protractors, ruler sets and hats and mittens.

If you would like to help, there is a large pink box and information in the welcome area of the church until Friday, November 6.
