Tesco Stornoway are helping the Salvation Army this Christmas with their in-store Giving Tree.

The tree is covered in Christmas gift tags for boys and girls from new born to age 16, adults and families. Customers are encouraged to select a tag and then buy a present for who they've chosen, a list of suggested gifts is beside the tree. The gift should be returned to the Tesco store unwrapped and with the gift tag attached by 20th December.

The presents will be collected by the Salvation Army and distributed in the local community for Christmas day to who have little or nothing under the tree making sure everyone has a special day and a present to open.

This is the third year Tesco and the Salvation Army have run this Christmas gift scheme which has proved the generosity and kindness of the islands residents.

You can donate to the appeal until the 20th of December.
