I have just done a rough final numbers for our toy appeal this year and think we will be providing for over 200 children!! (or at least trying too!)

If anyone is able to help us by donating toys, chocolates, books, wrapping paper or cellotape then it will most definitely be appreciated! please get in touch for more information of what we need…

As an extra plug, if people who are around on Friday feel moved to support; The Entertainer in Jackson square will match any £5 toy purchased for our toy appeal in store until Saturday 8th December:

We like to give each child 0-12 years;

One main toy, one book, one craft, one chocolate/sweets item (If we can!!)

We then give the 13-16 year olds a £10 ‘One 4 All’ voucher and something to open; soap set, pencil case, accessories

We give the 17+ youngsters a £15 ‘One 4 All’ voucher….

We also try and supply each family with some wrapping paper and cello tape to help them to have a ‘normal’ Christmas experience and allocate the toys best amongst their children.  we have 82 families.  Thanks you. Megan (The salvation Army)
