About us

The Toy Appeal is a registered charity, # 1179080, operated by Dee and Chris Drake each year, which provides a sack of toys at Christmas to children living in poverty. The Appeal has been running since 2013.

To date, we have made Christmas Day very special for over 11,000 children across the North West of England.

Working with social workers, schools, women’s refuges, food banks and 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.

The Christmas toy sacks are made specifically for each child, based on their age and any special needs they may have. We provide toys to children, regardless of race, religion and gender.

  1. Hi folks,

    I am the engagement officer here at the Altrincham Branch of Convergys.
    I wanted to get some info so we can start a christmas collection for yourselves

    If we were to start a collection is there a best date for yourselves? Where would it need to be dropped off?
    I am hoping to get some of the folks here physically involved in charity work over the december period, do you have any need for volunteers?
    Do you have any materials i can use to promote this and also is there anything that you do not collect??
