Not only because you need something, but because you have something to be thankful for.
Whitehaven Toy appeal
The Salvation Army in Whitehaven has for many years worked with local Social Services to supply needy families with both food parcels and toys for Christmas.
This will happen again this year despite challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, it is anticipated that due to job losses, furlough schemes and the current lock down that there will be many families in the Whitehaven area who will be suffering some degree of hardship and finding it difficult to provide their children with toys as well as other necessities.
The Salvation Army in Whitehaven are looking to assist such families by providing toys. Therefore, we would ask that members of the public either supply toys or donations in order that we can purchase toys/gifts.
The toys should be new and unwrapped and be for children from babies to those reaching their seventeenth birthday.
