Last year in Swindon an amazing 2,000 new toys were donated which enabled 353 children (134 families), to each receive 3 main presents, a soft toy, a book, and a stocking filler!
- Donations should be left in your Venue before going to tutor time.
- The items will be collected and then delivered to Gateway Church, in Westlea.
- The aim of the Toy Appeal is to bless every child with a new gift this Christmas, so they are unable to take used or second-hand items.
- Please do not wrap the gift that you are donating.
