With Cumbria being battered by Storm Frank, EVO-STIK Northern Premier League Blyth Spartans have revealed how they helped to bring some Christmas cheer to the youngest victims of the flooded county.

A Luton box van packed to bursting with toys for girls and boys of all ages arrived in Cumbria in time for Christmas thanks to the initiative of Spartans supporter John Parker.
After coming up with the idea as storms brought misery to many parts of the UK in the run-up to the festive season, Park enlisted Liam Henderson and Brian Delf and Ron Aspinall, volunteers from the Premier Division club's sponsors Quantum Elite, to help with loading up the van before persuading Kevin Little of Blyth's K. Little Transport to deliver the gifts from fans for free.

Parker said: “I just thought the football club could do something after the terrible floods over there and with Christmas coming up providing toys might help in some way.

“After we dropped off the toys The Eden Flood Volunteers group expressed their deepest gratitude to everyone who had thought of them during very tough times and suffering. From our point of view it was just nice to be of some help.”
