Winter Toy Appeal 2020
Collecting NEW toys for children in poverty
It's a wrap! This year's Winter Toy Appeal is now closed to donations as we focus our attention now on getting the toys out to children in most need. You can sign up for email updates below, or help us run future appeals by joining the Local Buyers Club.
Our very heartfelt thanks go to everyone who has supported the appeal. We have been moved to tears by your kindness. 2020 was a record year for the toy appeal - we reached more than 5,600 children in need and the money raised via our Go Fund Me has allowed us to buy from brilliant independent toy shops, which was been a lifeline in lockdown.
Toys donated via this year's appeal were predominantly distributed in Hackney, Islington, Haringey, Tower Hamlets and Barnet.
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.
Thanks everyone for your kindness!
