Through its Smiles at Christmas appeal, the Sun newspaper asked its readers to donate money and toys to put a smile on the faces of those children that need it most.

Our CEO Cliff O’Gorman said: “We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of Sun readers and the companies who have donated toys.
These special gifts have allowed us to surprise and delight the children who are fighting cancer this Christmas. It’s a wonderful gesture.”
