Thank you for your interest in our annual toy project.  Last year we were able to provide 7 or 8 toys and gifts to 2019 children and young people who otherwise might have gone without presents to open on Christmas Day.

  • Books
  • Games & Puzzles
  • Age related toys
  • Art and craft items including colouring books, felt tip pens, colouring pencils etc.
  • Sweets
  • Toiletries and other gifts suitable for teenagers
