A POPULAR parent and toddler group has been boosted with a donation of clothes and everyday essentials from Asda Worcester’s George department.

Members of Poppets visited the Lowesmoor store and were presented with £250 by the store's community life champion, Gemma Leyland, to ensure their ‘little poppets’ stay clean and dry.

The group began three years ago and has welcomed more than 200 families through its doors at Elim Pentecostal Church in Lowesmoor.

Poppets team leader Jo Curtis, said: "We work hard to provide a welcoming environment for any family in the area with young children.

"It’s a great feeling to know we have extra clothes and essentials to keep the children dry, clean and happy as play time can sometimes get messy."
