This year, the wonderful Toy Appeal https://thetoyappeal.com/ has supported over 9,000 children with toys for Christmas. The Caritas Schools’ Service referred over 1,000 of these children.
However, in the last week before Christmas, there are always additional children and families who need help at the last minute.
This is where our incredible parishes and supporters come in! From them, we collect more brand new toy donations to bridge this gap.
This week, Caritas Schools’ Service staff have been able to help over 200 children with toys and vouchers for Christmas.
A special thank you to: Alison Law Solicitors, St Bede’s College, Christ The King Parish Walkden, Sugar Free TV, the Histopathology Department at the Royal Oldham Hospital, a personal donation of toys from a couple in Walkden, advent calendars from Cardinal Langley School in Middleton and the staff and cast of Coronation Street!
