Winter Toy Appeal 2019
Collecting NEW toys for children in poverty
THIS YEAR'S APPEAL IS NOW CLOSED TO FURTHER DONATIONS.
A HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CONTRIBUTED
Please join the Local Buyers Club mailing list to keep updated...
For six years running, we've collected brand new toys for children experiencing extreme poverty in North London. In 2019 your toys reached more than 4,000 children in need.
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 in North London who are experiencing the toughest of times.
We also collect non-perishable food for local food banks..
The appeal is run by the Local Buyers Club in partnership with Location Location estate agency and The Ivy Street Family Centre.
