Chadd Dearden is collecting Christmas presents for underprivileged families
A Rochdale locksmith is collecting toys and donations for underprivileged families this Christmas.
Chadd Dearden, of Pennines Locks, is collecting donations which he will donate to local charities directly working with underprivileged families.
The 29-year-old father has also donated 100% of his business profits from November – and will for December – to go towards more gifts, decorations and food for families in need.
Chadd said: “The reason I am doing this is solely to help those in need. For a child, Christmas should be a magical time with lots of enjoyment, food and happiness.
“As a father of a six-year-old, I can see the enjoyment in his face daily as Christmas get closer. I want every child to feel and share the same enjoyment. And day by day, job by job, I’m trying to make that change.
“So far I have had an amazing response from customers and local people within the community who have donated some amazing items to help.”
Chadd will be accepting donations until 22 December. Presents will be delivered on the evening of 22 and the morning of 23 December.
Anyone wishing to donate can contact Chadd via the Pennine Locks Facebook page, or contact him via mobile: 07944198404
