The Christmas Toy Appeal 2018

The Community & Voluntary Services are once again holding their Christmas Toy Appeal, now in its 7th year. The appeal is run in aid of Cheshire East children and families that face difficult circumstances this winter and would otherwise may not be able to provide the magical and joyful experience all children should have on Christmas morning in finding presents under the tree.

Community & Voluntary Services support hundreds of charities, non profits and community groups throughout the year with guidance and advice on things like governance, funding, volunteering and training. 

Encourage your friends, family and colleagues to support the Christmas Toy Appeal and help Santa find his way to all the Cheshire East children this year. The toys donated to the appeal will be distributed to registered Cheshire East charities and organisations who work directly with the families and children in need.  

Some of those supported are:

  • Children with have chaotic home lives with domestic violence and substance misuse a regular occurrence.
  • Families whose loved ones are in hospice for end of life care.
  • Children and young people who care for a member of their family at home, many come from families who are financially disadvantaged.

What can i donate?

All gifts and toys donated need to be as suitable for as many as possible:

  1. Brand new or as new items in box only
