    Story

    Every year we donate hundred of Christmas gifts to disadvantaged and vulnerable children in the Abingdon and surrounding areas. We are committed to doing the same this year and for this, we need your help!

    We are looking for toy donations for children aged 1-12 and teenager gifts up to age 16. This money will enable us to purchase toys on your behalf, as well as pay towards hall hire for The Big Wrap and also printing leaflets.

    We can assure you that your act of kindness will have a huge impact on the wellbeing of these children and bring some joy into their lives. For these kids, your gift really makes a difference.

    All the children are referred to us by local charities whose families desperately need a helping hand through tough circumstances such as domestic violence, zero hour contracts, illness, and house fires.

    We’re hugely proud to say that the generosity of the local community last year, helped 369 families, with over 900 presents being opened Christmas morning by local children.

    Unfortunately this year's COVID19 pandemic means that there are likely to be even more families in need of a little help this Christmas. If you can donate even just a few pounds we can buy toys for those in need on Christmas Day.... we need your help more than ever 🙏In order to continue this work in Abingdon we need to source the following items

    * Kids toys 0-5, 5-12, and teenager gifts

    * Selection boxes

    * Wrapping paper/gift tags

    * Board Games

    This is where all donations will go.

    Thank you in advance
