Winter Toy Appeal 2021
Collecting NEW toys for children in poverty
2021 is our ninth annual Winter Toy Appeal and our determination to make a difference is stronger than ever.
Please buy a gift for a child in London who is experiencing hardship. We work with a range of agencies including children's centres, refuges, social workers baby banks, food banks, migrant centres and more to ensure your donations reach children in most need.
Last year's appeal reached 5,600 of the capital's poorest children, predominantly in Hackney, Islington, Haringey, Tower Hamlets and Barnet.
They go to children who are expecting to go without while their peers excitedly talk about Christmas. They go to children of all faiths and all ages; to families who are experiencing the toughest of times.
Thanks for your kindness!
