Winter Toy Appeal 2020
Collecting NEW toys for children in poverty
Every year our Toy Appeal provides new gifts at Christmas for thousands of children experiencing extreme poverty in London.
This year, in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, we're more determined than ever to make a difference. We've had to make some changes to keep organisers safe. All toys will need to be bought online via the wish list or, if you donate to the Go Fund Me, we will use the money to buy gifts from independent shops for the appeal.
Toys bought via the wish list will be sent straight to the agencies which distribute them.
The toys are distributed via a network of social workers, schools, children's centres, food banks, hostels and refuges to children in most need. 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.
Stoke Newington Toys & Books and Hop of Hackney are offering 20% off Toy Appeal purchases - please leave your purchases in store for us to collect (when these shops are open).
The appeal is in its seventh year - it's run by the Local Buyers Club in partnership with StokeyParents and Location Location estate agency.
