Providing toys and gifts to children and young people who might otherwise go without presents who are referred by our trusted referral agents
In December 2022 we were able to provide a parcel of presents to 2762 children and young people. That is an increase of 21% from the previous year. Thank you so much for your support in enabling us to help all the families that were referred.
If you wish to purchase a gift from Amazon you can use our wishlists. That way the parcel gets delivered directly to us.
If you wish to donate and cannot get to our warehouse, we do have several drop off points. Please see attached.

A few of the lovely comments from last year are shown below.
- I am overwhelmed by the amazing gifts and the generosity & kindness shown to my children, and myself. I can't even begin to thank you enough. The gifts were perfect. Beautifully bundled and even included paper and everything required to make them extra special. Thank you for making a difficult time so much easier and for putting a huge smile on our faces. I am forever grateful.
- Good morning, I just want to say how unbelievably grateful I am to you for getting my children’s gifts for Christmas. They arrived this morning. I’m so overwhelmed at such a hard time so thank you so, so much all my best wishes to you.
- I’ve just ended a mentally abusive relationship and was struggling today about it all, and when I came back inside, opened box, to see the wonderful gifts inside, I felt oddly not alone, bags had MY kids names on them, made me feel for a little while that we aren’t insignificant. I had a cry and counted my blessing for absolute certain. I immediately wrapped it all and labelled it from Scratch charity so my children appreciate and understand such kindness. Sorry for the long email, I just felt so moved and wanted to tell you just how it changed my whole day and Thank-you all from the bottom of my heart.
- I just wanted to write a message to say how incredibly grateful I am to have received such lovely presents for my son this Christmas, it means so much to have all these donated to me thank you all so much.
- On Friday I was coming home and saw huge box full of toys next to my door! I couldn’t believe this is for me and from who! I can’t even describe how I felt, this is enormously touching and heart melting! Thank you so much! I’m so, so grateful and appreciate your kind work! This kindness is like a miracle! My daughter will be delighted when I give it to her on Christmas Day! Thank you again for your kind work!
- I hope this email finds you well, I just wanted to say a big thank you to you, from me and my children. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
- Thank you to everyone at SCRATCH for putting together such a wonderful selection of Christmas presents for the family that I'm currently supporting. All four children were delighted with their gifts and it meant a lot to their mother, as they were obviously all very aware of things their school friends were getting and she was in no position to buy any presents for them herself.
