We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to our amazing volunteers who have gone above and beyond for our Christmas Toy Appeal.Their dedication has had a massive impact on the toy appeal; without them, we wouldn’t have been able to help the magnitude of children that we have.

A huge thank you to longstanding patrons Mandale Group for kindly loaning us two of their units to host our toy appeal. Their generous gesture of loaning us two of their units has played a crucial role in facilitating our toy appeal. The units were based at Mandale Group’s newest business park comprising 21 industrial units, Mandale Group’s head office and warehouse, based in Urlay Nook. Thank you for your unwavering commitment to making a positive impact in our community.

Lastly, thank you to James Lees for playing the role of Santa and collecting toys from local businesses.
