A family-owned business is once again showing their support to families in Wrexham this Christmas.

Swansway Group, with new and used car and van dealerships located across the North West and Midlands, has made donations of gifts and toys for children this festive season.

Operating as the 'Swansway Santa Patrol', gifts on behalf of Wrexham Volkswagen and Volkswagen Van Centre Wrexham have been delivered to Hope House Children's Hospice and Family Friends Wrexham, both of which support a variety of families in need in Wrexham and the surrounding areas.

This is Swansway Group's latest contribution to these charities' worthwhile efforts to support local families at difficult times in their lives.

Arash Shayestehroo, brand manager at Wrexham Volkswagen, said: "We are very grateful to all our customers for their support over the years, and the Santa Patrol is one way we can give back to the communities where we do business.

"We are delighted to be able to give Christmas an early 'boost' for local families in need, to alleviate some of the anxiety that they can experience at this time of year.

"Sadly, for so many, the need for family support has never been higher and we were only too happy to be able to donate these gifts so that Hope House could give a special present to every seriously ill child visiting them for respite care over Christmas and to contribute to the Family Friends Christmas party."

Sarah Daniels, Hope House play leader said: "We would just like to say a huge thank you to the team at Wrexham Volkswagen and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Wrexham for the kind donation of toys for the children and young people here at Hope House.

"Your generosity means that the children have received gifts that will enable and benefit them greatly upon their respite stays.

"It was so kind of you to think of us when donating to a charity and by giving us the opportunity to explain what may benefit our children has meant that the items we have received will all be used in a positive way.

"They will bring opportunities of therapeutic play and help promote the ability of communication for our children and young people."
