Operation Santa

Operation Santa

This year, Radio Chelmsford and The Body Shop, Chelmsford are supporting the YMCA's Operation Santa. We are appealing for Christmas donations for the YMCA’s residents, children, and young people using their childcare and youth services. The YMCA have set up Christmas boxes in their reception for you to drop off your gifts, or alternatively you can drop them off at The Body Shop in Chelmsford’s High Chelmer shopping centre. Volunteers from YMCA Essex will wrap the gifts and deliver them to the our residents, children, and young people, so that they have something to open on Christmas morning. For more information on the types suitable gifts, please see below. Brighten up someone’s Christmas this year, by supporting Operation Santa.
