A POPULAR Christmas appeal which has helped dozens of Malvern families is back again.

Malvern Rotary's Christmas Hamper appeal helps families every year by providing essential items to those in need.

This year it returns with a collection outside Waitrose in Malvern on November 26 and 27, and is sponsored by Morgan Motor Company, Waitrose, Audley Ellerslie and Schmersal Ltd.

The club will be providing 100 treat packages to families struggling this Christmas and ensuring they reach those who need them most.

To sponsor a treat package, go to the Malvern Rotary website at www.rotary-ribi.org/clubs/page.php?PgID=822347&ClubID=611
