Winter Toy Appeal 2023
This year's appeal has now closed. Thank you so much to everyone who supported the appeal. Thanks to your generosity we have managed to collect gifts for over 5,000 children experiencing extreme hardship.
Please join the Local Buyers Club if you can. We rely on the support of our members to run the appeal each year.
It's the big one! This is our 10th Winter Toy Appeal.
The need in 2023 is huge - thousands of children in North and East London are experiencing extreme hardship. Without this appeal, many wouldn't receive a gift at Christmas.
The cost-of-living crisis has hit families hard, Universal Credit fails to cover even the essentials, food prices have risen sharply and many families face the impossible choice of whether to eat or heat their homes.
Last year, thanks to your kindness, we provided new toys for more than 5,000 children experiencing hardship and generated more than £30,000 of trade for independent shops.
This year the agencies who refer to us tell us things are tougher than ever and we are expecting referrals to be up.
Please buy a new gift for a child experiencing extreme poverty in London. They'll be distributed via schools, social workers, children's centres, councils, refuges and more to children in most need.
The appeal reaches children in Hackney, Haringey, Islington, Tower Hamlets and Leyton.
Funds donated via Go Fund Me will be used to buy toys from independent shops.
December 15th is the last day to donate. Donations made after this date will be used for next year's appeal.
Help keep the Appeal going by joining the Local Buyers Club for half price (just £7.49) and we'll donate £7.49 to the Appeal fund.
