The Toy Appeal, operated by Dee and Chris Drake each year, provides toys at Christmas to children living in poverty. The Appeal has been running since 2013.
In 2017, with your support, we were able to provide a sack of toys to 3,000 children in the Manchester and Cheshire area.
Working with social workers, schools and various drop-in centres, the Appeal is provided with lists of families, who need help to ensure that their children receive something at Christmas. The Toy Appeal can only take requests for toy sacks via the above routes.
Each toy sack is made specifically for each child, based on their age and any special needs they may have. To date, we have provided 7,200 toy sacks to underprivileged children in the Manchester and Cheshire area.
In 2018, in our 6th year, we are hoping to be able to provide toy sacks to 3,000 children. This can only be achieved with your support.
We provide toys to children, regardless of race, religion and gender.
