Stratford District Mayor Neil Volzke says he is "delighted" with the generosity of the community.
On Friday Neil, assisted by some Stratford District Council elves, drove around the district delivering gifts on behalf of the mayoral gift appeal.
This year, 22 households were visited by the team, who dropped off a range of gifts and treats to make sure everyone can enjoy the Christmas season this year.
The kindness and thoughtfulness of those who donated to the appeal is appreciated, says Neil.
