Toy Appeal 2016

The weather is bitterly cold...and Flint peers out of his window in disgust at the children playing in the snow, filled with Christmas cheer...

Flint hates Christmas - and he's trying his hardest to take away the happiness and laughter in Bolton and Bury...


won't let this happen on their watch - but we need your help!

When you're doing your Christmas shopping, please support our campaign and buy one extra toy and drop it into one of the Toy Appeal bins at your nearest drop off point. Let's bring Christmas cheer to EVERY child in Bolton and Bury, and show the true meaning of Christmas to Flint!!

Donations will be accepted until Friday 9th December.
