A RECRUITMENT company is collecting toys for youngsters in hospital this Christmas.

The Colchester branch of Adecco, based in Sir Isaac’s Walk, is asking companies to give a gift or selection box to the Colchester Hospitals Charity (CoHOC).

Presents will then be given to patients on the Children’s Unit who are forced to stay over Christmas.

Adecco can arrange collection of presents. Cuddly toys cannot be accepted for hygiene reasons.
