Christmas Toy Appeal
For families in need
Every Christmas we work hard to ensure that everyone in our community have what they need, and a little extra this Christmas. Our local community statistically falls within the 1% most deprived in the UK and we work alongside hundreds of families who are struggling against poverty. We do this through our food pantry, providing school uniform, energy top-ups and essentials, information, advice, training, courses and in partnership with many agencies and organisations.
Each Christmas we provide hundreds of local children with toy hampers to help our families who were struggling against poverty, and this year will be no different. Qualified parents/caregivers can access our toy grotto where shelves filled with a huge range of toys enable them to choose the items they know their children want.
We can only do this though with your support.
How can you help?
- Donate new toys. We have a collection point in the Hideaway entrance.
- Get your people involved. How about setting up a collection point at your workplace or church and gathering support that way? We can provide posters to help let people know!
- Make a financial donation. You can buy a toy using the donate buttons below and we'll buy the toys wholesale - meaning we can buy at least 2 for the RRP of 1, and we can buy the items we're short of.
- Buy a toy hamper on behalf of a loved one. What better gift can you give this year? We'll send you a gift card to give them at Christmas letting them know what was purchased on their behalf.
