Evesham’s very own Father Christmas is bagging up dozens of presents ready to give out to struggling families.

Kyle Hotchkins is raising money to give presents to 74 children in the area whose families are finding things tough at the moment.

The dad-of-two has already bagged up 46 bundles of presents and is working hard to get the rest ready for the end of November.

Kyle is also providing Christmas dinners - boxes containing a turkey, vegetables, crackers and Christmas puddings - to 10 families.

“It started last year when I wanted to help one family,” said Kyle. “It got stuck on Facebook and I ended up giving presents to 36 kids, and Christmas dinner to six families.

“It’s obviously grown again this year.”

Kyle, who lives in Evesham, not only wraps and bags up the presents but is also planning to deliver them dressed as Father Christmas.

This year he’ll be delivering to children in Evesham, Pershore, Broadway, Moreton in Marsh and Redditch.

Mr Hotchkins has set up a GoFundMe and an Amazon wishlist for people who may wish to contribute to any of the costs.
