🎄 this year 454 children in our local area need support 🎄
HOW YOU CAN HELP
By donating any toys and gifts - new and unwrapped - you can help us make sure no child goes without a gift to open on Christmas Day. For more information on how to do this, please contact our local Co-ordinator on 07708 576 444.
We believe every child deserves a new gift at Christmas so are unable to take used or second-hand items at this time.
Thank you in advance for your generosity which we do not take for granted.
