Weʼve raised £445 to Collect Presents for Children Living in Poverty or Refuge This Christmas
- Funded on Thursday, 12th December 2019
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are looking for local people and businesses in and around Peterborough to donate gifts before the 12th December as part of our annual Christmas Present Appeal in partnership with the Salvation Army.
The toys will be donated to children living in refuge from domestic abuse and those living in poverty who otherwise wouldn’t get any gifts.
This is the second year we have teamed up with the Salvation Army in a bid to ensure every child in Peterborough has a present to open at Christmas.
Last year, we collected over 600 toys to donate to vulnerable children, and this year, we want to help even more.
Items suitable for donation include:
• 0-3 years: dolls, teddy bears, cot mobiles, baby clothes, bath toys, puzzles
• 3-5: dolls and action figures, cars, lorries, colouring sets, pencils, crayons, books, puzzles
• 5-9: educational games & toys, stationery (colouring sets, pencils, crayons, school sets), books, puzzles, word searches, crosswords
• 9-12: games and toys, stationery, books, t-shirts, hair accessories, gloves, scarves, hats
• 13-16: books, make-up and toiletries (please try to ensure non-allergic ingredients if possible), gloves, scarves, hats, t-shirts, hair accessories and gift vouchers
All gifts must be unopened and unused.
If you want to donate to the appeal, you can do so by dropping off or sending in toys and gifts to the XL Displays office which is located at 36-39 Manasty Road, Orton Southgate, Peterborough, PE2 6UP.
If you don’t have time to go to the shops and buy toys, you can donate money via this JustGiving page. We will use the money to purchase toys on your behalf and send you a copy of the receipt afterwards to show you what your money has been spent on.
All donations must be received by 12th December ready for the Salvation Army to collect and distribute the gifts in time for Christmas.
Thank you for your support.
