DANCE guru Len Goodman is urging readers to support our Toy Appeal as we prepare to hand hundreds of gifts to sick children spending Christmas in hospital.

Readers have just one more week to donate toys and the Strictly Come Dancing judge has given our second annual appeal a 10 out of 10.

Having supported the first ever appeal last year, he said: "The Kentish Times' Christmas Toy Appeal is marvellous idea and anything that makes a child's life happier when they are in hospital over Christmas must be a wonderful thing.

"It is great and that is why I am supporting this again and urging readers to have one last push and donate if you have not already done so."

Len Goodman, 64, who found instant fame when he became head judge of the hit BBC1 show, founded his dance schools in Gravesend and Dartford in the '70s.

Mr Goodman added: "The hospitals do as much as they can, the nurses are very kind and caring people and I know they will be grateful for the toys donated by your readers.

"It is easy to forget about people in hospital over Christmas and it is great that the paper is reminding people about this by running the appeal."
