A community-led scheme hopes to “spread a little Christmas sparkle” to vulnerable families – while helping independent shops that have struggled during the pandemic. Action Greater Bedminster volunteers expect to wrap 350 presents, such as books, pens, toys, craft sets, chocolates and toiletries, bought by donors from an online list of items from independent retailers. They will distribute them in south Bristol as part of the Pass the Parcel drive.
