    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    The Toy Appeal is run by Chris & Dee Drake and a lot of volunteers, this is our 5th year of supporting Children across Manchester and Cheshire with Christmas toy sacks. Over the last 4 years we have provided 4200 toy sacks, this year we aim to provide another 4000!

    We take referrals from schools and social workers, we are supporting children who would otherwise have nothing to open on Christmas day.

    We spend on average £25 per child, we will hold fundraising events during the year and we will collect and sort donated toys, but we have a long way to go to enable us to support 2000 more children than last year, so we are extremely grateful for any donation you can make.

      Wow wow Wow, we are absolutely overwhelmed by your support & generosity. We have now bought all the main presents, board games & teddies for 3000 children & we are working on books, craft, stocking fillers & sports items. This year’s appeal has been fantastic & I can only imagine the smiles on lots of little faces on Christmas morning thanks to your kindness. Thank you all! X .

      We are really busy right now collating requests for toys sacks from social worker & schools, we now have 2500 requests. Please support us if you can. We will be making up the toy sacks in December & your support will really make a difference to a child who otherwise would have no presents to open on Christmas morning.
