The gifts were given to The Haven Community Centre, run by The Salvation Army, in Lake Road, Portsmouth, by staff at Apollo Fire Detectors.

Steve Brown, managing director at the Havant firm, visited the community centre yesterday.

The money for the gifts had been raised by staff, who took part in fundraising activities, such as dress down Fridays, a Christmas jumper day and staff competitions. Fundraising will continue until the end of this week and the final amount raised will be handed to The Haven in January.
