CHRISTMAS is a busy time for many businesses – but one firm knows it is also a time for giving and it is donating to the Echo Christmas Toy Appeal.

Wessex Conveyancing is hoping that others will follow its lead and give £100 to bring festive cheer to hundreds of needy children across Dorset.

Director Jane White said: “At Wessex Conveyancing the build-up to Christmas is usually very busy with many clients wishing to complete the purchase of their new homes in time to move in for Christmas.

“However, we are all aware that for some families who are living in difficult circumstances Christmas can be a challenging time. It is for the children in these families that the Echo’s Toy Appeal is so important and worthwhile and we at Wessex Conveyancing are pleased to add our support.”
