AN Evesham coffee shop has helped to collect 25 Christmas presents for children at Vale Lodge Children's Home.

Babyccino Coffee, which opened in Market Place earlier this year, asked its customers to donate presents to children at Vale Lodge.

Co-owner of the business, James Maple said: "We asked our fantastic customers to help us, and managed to collect 25 Xmas presents!.

“ James Waple and Zuzana Malovcova, co owners of Babyccino Coffee in Evesham, would like to thank everybody who donated presents for the local children’s home in Evesham.

"We are blown away by the generosity of our community, and we couldn’t have done it without you.

"We wish you all a wonderful Christmas, and good fortune in 2018.

"The final count of 25 presents were delivered to Vale Lodge Children’s home in Evesham, last night.

"I believe that because of the massive support received they are able to distribute a few of them to their “sister” children’s home in Worcester as well. I personally think that this is a bonus, that the support received was also able to benefit children, slightly further afield but still local in Worcestershire."
