NAKED Barbie dolls from Redbourn are hoping to be included in this year's Samaritan Purse Christmas Collection.

Grace Sawyer, a local resident and Samaritan worker, picked up 17 naked Barbie dolls at a charity shop a couple of weeks ago and has appealed to her fellow Redbourn residents for clothes to keep them warm.

A few friends have already come forward with donations and offers to sew new clothes and any fully-dressed Barbies will be used for Operation Christmas Child, a Samaritan scheme which sends shoe boxes full of treats to underprivileged children.

Grace said that any donations will be more than welcome: "If you have any spare toys, writing materials, toiletries or crafts, then please consider filling a shoe box for the scheme. Barbie dolls are just one of many perfect present ideas."

If you'd like to take part in the scheme, contact Grace at gracesawyer@talktalk.net
