About The Toy Appeal

It is hard to imagine that in this day and age, that there are children in families where even a basic gift will not be given. This is at no fault of the parent and certainly not the child, all for a very wide number of reasons. Social security issues, fleeing domestic abuse, fire, burglary, ill health and sheer poverty are all reasons why families might find themselves unable to buy presents.

Can you even start to imagine how that must feel?

This is why the Toy Appeal was formed back in 2017.

Every year we get to hear about a growing number of children and families in these circumstances, and every year we need more and more new presents to deliver to every child/ young person aged from 0-18.These youngsters maybe your children, your neighbours, a friend’s child, but whoever they will be living in your area. These are children that will not be given presents unless you help them. Remember, Birthdays and Christmas Day is THE most important date in any youngster’s diary.

Fundraising is critical for us, so we ask for donations in toys/gifts, and we appeal to the general public and local businesses who are so very generous and donate some wonderful presents. We have a drop off point in Wolverhampton, where people can drop off unwrapped gifts.
The numbers have risen significantly, and Christmas 2019 saw us handing out 25,000 gifts.

So please if you could help in any way, either donating or buy that extra present and pop it into the drop off centre listed on this website.
