Winter Toy & Food Appeal 2019
Collecting NEW toys for children in poverty
The toys are distributed to children in care, those living in temporary and hostel accommodation, those fleeing domestic violence and abuse, kids whose parents are going hungry and depending on food banks, children in schools who expected to go without while their peers excitedly talk about Christmas. They go to children of all faiths and all age; to families in North London who are experiencing the toughest of times.
We're also collecting non-perishable food for local food banks.
The gifts are distributed by the Local Buyers Club team, Location Location estate agency and The Ivy Street Family Centre via a wonderful network of social workers, refuges, schools, children's centres, hostels, food banks and a migrant centre to children in most need.
Please give what you can! Ideally we'd love you to shop local. If you order online, please deliver to Winter Toy Appeal, 18 Stoke Newington Church St, N16 0LU.
You can also shop via the Toy Appeal Wish List
