Christmas Toy Appeal

This Christmas we will continue to be collecting for 2019 Toy Appeal. More information will follow!

Launch assembly for the Christmas Toy Appeal

Christmas Toy Appeal

The Toy Appeal creates & distributes thousands of Christmas toys sacks directly to under-privileged children across Manchester and Cheshire, via referrals from their social worker, school or support centre.

We create an individual red toy sack for each named child, which is suitable to their age & any special needs.

We help children regardless of race, gender or religion.

The Appeal was founded in 2013 by Chris & Dee Drake and is run by a large group of volunteers and supporters. The Appeal is run purely on a voluntary basis, not for profit basis. Through generous donations and amazing support we have been able to increase the number of children we help year on year.

We really need as many new toys as possible to be donated to the Appeal, to enable us to provide toy sacks to thousands more children this year.


We would be grateful for the following –

  • Main presents (age 0 – 17 years) – Lego, dolls, toiletries, cars, skate boards etc.
  • New Board Games / Puzzles
  • Books (good condition pre-loved is ok)
  • Teddies (good condition pre-loved is ok)


We also raise funds to purchase toys via our JustGiving page. Every £1 we raise is spent on items for the children’s toy sacks.

We will be making up the toy sacks in December, so would appreciate any donations by early December. See our website for drop off points.

All presents should be UNWRAPPED.

Please visit our website if you would like to know more about what we do. Follow us on social media if you would like to get involved.

Thank you so much for your support
