Stephen Spencer, front of house officer for the museum, said: "I am so pleased with how the appeal has gone.

"I am new in post to the museum and the team have been running this collection for years with lots of local support form our visitors, staff and volunteers.

"It is great to be part of the community and help bring some Christmas cheer to local children."

Museum front of house staff member Natalie Harries and volunteer Wendy Nealon dropped some of the donations off to the Warwickshire Children Services last Friday (December 13).
