npower, sponsors of the npower Football League, asked staff to vote for a good cause this Christmas – and more than 700 of chose Zoe's Place from a selection of charities nationwide.

npower head of sponsorship Emma Collins said: "A number of our npower Football League clubs had sent us cuddly toy mascots. Our staff wanted them to go to a good home, and bring joy to some little lives.

"The vote for Zoe's Place in Middlesbrough was overwhelming. We hope the children love the npower toy donation."
