So we made our drop off!!!! 14 boxes and 5 bags full of toys and a massive 1191.68 (1200 after the donation on just giving) I just want to say thank you to every single person who has contributed in what ever way, from helping at her party to sharing her posts on Facebook! Thank you, the toys and money will help put a smile on so many children! @alderhey@inspired_alder_hey 🎅🎄🎁🎁🎁🎄🎅
Before you post photo's of a Christmas tree with loads of presents underneath, Gucci bags, Alexander McQueen trainers, Givenchy sweatshirts, spare a thought for those who are struggling to get their kids a few presents, those worrying about where their next meal is coming from. Go and dig out your old winter clothes and take them to a homeless shelter, buy a present for a toy appeal, buy a few extra tins of food for a foodbank. Got a friend who has lost loved ones or struggles at Christmas, send them a text to show you care. Be there for those who need someone.
Enjoy Christmas but bring a little warmth into someone elses. Christmas isn't about getting presents, it's about giving.
TWO DAYS TO GO! Head to the donation station now to drop off your toys 🤗🎁 Thank you so much for your donations so far and helping us smash our target #ToyAppeal

#GiveTheGiftOfGiving 💚 @smallkinduk ・・・L E S S F O R U S
I spend my working life with the most isolated and vulnerable people in society and the period approaching #Christmas can be pretty bleak. I don’t want my boys to feel bad about what they have but I do want them to understand they are #fortunate to be in a position to #givesomethingtoothers. They are a bit little to be doing anything hands on so we tend to give ‘things’ and use this as a way of talking about social issues in a very simple way. .
So my ideas for giving this `Christmas: .
🎄 #Donate some none perishable Christmas foods to the #foodbank and toiletries to a hygiene bank. Google collection points in your area (most supermarkets have them) or if you’re short on time make a donation to @trusselltrust who co-ordinate food banks nationally. My boys enjoy doing a mini shop for the food bank. They get a basket and choose three items each and at the end of the food shop we put them in the collection bins. It keeps them occupied while we’re shopping and helps start a conversation about doing things for other people. .
🎄 Make a donation to a local #charity instead of sending Christmas Cards.
🎄 Donate a toy to a local #toyappeal (Women’s Aid and Hospitals usually have them).
🎄 Give a charity gift. This year for the first time we have a white envelope on the tree. It contains a little note to the boys which reads “Jesse & Jonah, You have given £20 to Simon on the Streets, a charity which helps the people we see in town who don’t have a home. They said thank you.” @simonotstreets It’s a small thing but it’s something they will understand.
If you can’t afford to give money this year maybe you can spare some time, take the kids to visit relatives you know are lonely, make some food to give to #roughsleepers, offer to do some shopping for a neighbour, grab a bag and go pick up some litter, make up a plate of #leftovers for someone who would appreciate it. There are lots of ways you can give something back without spending and giving in any form makes us feel more satisfied and socially connected. Doing something for others is a #giftthatkeepsongiving 😊
It’s so lovely to see the kindness and generousity you have shown the Toy Appeal! If you haven’t donated yet there are 2 days left to donate, don’t miss out! Head to the Customer Service Desk!
Privileged to work on @eagle_radio’s Toy Appeal again this year - thanks to the generosity of listeners, thousands of toys and gifts have been donated to less fortunate kids and teenagers across Surrey and Hampshire.
It’s a perfect example of how the station serves its community and uses its influence to help others.
We’re broadcasting live today from the sorting office HQ where our elves are busy sorting the toys to be collected by various charities.
It’s amazing to see their faces when they come to collect the donations!
YEARRRRS AGO I did this print for @tibaandmarl I’m so happy it’s found a use here... #regram TIBA XMAS TOY APPEAL 🖤 From now until Christmas we will be donating £10 from the sale of every full-priced adult bag to Family Action's 2018 Toy Appeal. This will help @family_actionensure that children who could benefit, receive a Christmas gift, allowing them to experience a little festive magic no matter what their family is facing 💫 so if you’ve got a T+M still to buy someone on your Christmas list, you can do so now knowing it will help bring a festive treat to a well deserving little person 🎅🏻 We feel honoured to be part of this wonderful initiative ❤️ #tibaandmarl#toyappeal#familyaction#love#sharethelove further details on our site

Thank you to everyone who has donated gifts for the children at Pinderfields Hospital. We are overwhelmed with the amazing response we have seen so far! 🌟
If you would like to donate a present to the children at Pinderfields Hospital this Christmas all you need to do is: - Buy an extra toy this Christmas and wrap it. - To help match the gift to the child it would help if you could please add a gift tag with the suitability of the gift, and the appropriate age range. - Drop the gift off at reception anytime up until 20th December. - For hospital hygiene reasons please be aware that cuddly toys should not be donated.
We will be donating all gifts on Friday 21st December. We would love it if you could help us to make a difference, and help fill our sleigh with gifts that count this Christmas🎄✨.

🎅 Oltec fm Christmas Jumper Day and Children Toy Appeal 🎁
Last week Oltec fm Head Office employees got into the festive spirit and took part in two Christmas charity fundraising events; Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day and Wish FM Radio’s Toy Appeal.
🎁 Christmas Toy Appeal:
For the third year running the Head office Team took part in a toy collection in aid of Wish FM Radio’s Toy Appeal. The Toy Appeal spreads cheer this Christmas to local children and has been set up in order to make sure that children do not go without Christmas presents. People are asked to buy one extra gift this Christmas and these are distributed to boys and girls of all ages via a number of local charities.
Our Director donating our companies toys bought by Links staff to #ToyAppeal. Great cause for sick and disadvantaged children. Christmas really is a time for giving, and this is a great cause to give toys too. Merry Christmas everybody! Links Team 🎄
BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has donated to our Secret Santa Toy Appeal. Here are the staff at Spar Hambleton who also donated a BMX bike themselves! You can still drop off your donations at Radio Wave, Mowbray Drive ❤️Scott and Stacey X #secretsanta#toyappeal#ScottandStacey
