SANTA is urging shoppers to buy an extra Christmas present to help out families struggling this festive season.

The Salvation Army in Hemel Hempstead has launched its appeal for Christmas goodies to help families that are facing hardship.

Superdrug in Marlowes has teamed up with the good cause as a drop-off point for prezzies, which can be donated from this Saturday.

They will be redistributed to families in the week before Christmas to ensure little ones do not go without.
