In December 2017 we were able to provide a parcel of toys and gifts for 1855 children and young people ranging from babies up to 17 year olds.

To enable us to help everyone referred to us this year we require: -

  • Age relevant toys
  • Games & Puzzles
  • Books
  • Colouring books, colouring pencils, crayons & colouring books
  • Art & Craft sets
  • Gifts suitable for teenagers
  • Sweets
  • Christmas wrapping paper and Sellotape
  • Sturdy cardboard boxes
  • Batteries (all sizes)
  • Finance to enable us to purchase gifts when we have shortages for particular age groups
  • Finance towards the running costs of the project – premises hire, vehicle hire, fuel and admin costs.

Please note that we cannot accept guns or war related toys. 

We prefer new items, but will happily accept excellent quality second hand
