A first ever Christmas for disadvantaged children in Cornwall.

That is what the charity Chicks is providing for some youngsters.

It is for those who may have been abused, be living in poverty or be caring for a sick relative.

It wants to give them a Christmas to remember and is running festive getaways in the Duchy.

The kids will be taken to the pantomime, Truro Cathedral, have a Christmas dinner and open presents.

Each child is having presents personally chosen for them and there are 2400 to wrap.

Chief Executive Eleanor Hoskin said: "We want to make sure that the children know that at Christmas, which is such a special time, that we are still thinking of them, and there are people that want to give them that care, that attention, we know it can be the only one or one of very few presents they will receive so it is very important."

Head of Fundraising Tim Bunting has been wrapping gifts in Tywardreath near Par.

He said: "These children through no fault of their own might not get the opportunity to experience what we probably enjoyed as children, like trips to the beach, so the Christmas breaks are really special, they are going to the pantomime, to Truro cathedral, having tea, I think might even be going to Eden and then opening presents on Christmas day."
