The gift-laden boxes were collected from the sales and marketing suite at Cissbury Chase last week and are now on their way to be opened on Christmas day by less fortunate children across the world.

This is the third year that Barratt Homes has opened up its show homes to be used as a drop off point for Operation Christmas Child.

Lynnette St Quintin, sales director for Barratt Southern Counties, said: “Thank you to everyone who brought a Christmas shoe box along to Montague Park in the last few weeks. Hopefully these generous contributions will go a little way to bring a bit of Christmas cheer to children in other parts of the world.”
