Christmas Toy Appeal

The festive season is upon us, and what better way to spread holiday cheer than by bringing smiles to the faces of local children that need it most? This Christmas, we are thrilled to launch our Toy Appeal in collaboration with The Hubb Foundation, a wonderful charity dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of children in need locally.

About The Hubb Foundation:

The Hubb Foundation is a charity based in Stoke-on-Trent with a mission to support local disadvantaged and vulnerable children in our community. Find out more about The Hubb Foundation here.

Our Toy Appeal:

This Christmas, we invite you to join us in making a difference by participating in our Toy Appeal. The concept is simple yet essential at this time of year for struggling families – we are collecting new, unwrapped toys that will be gifted to local children who may otherwise not have the opportunity to receive presents on Christmas Day.

How You Can Contribute:

  • Choose a gift: Select a new, unwrapped toy or gift suitable for children up to 16 years old. Think of gifts that can bring joy and spark creativity.
  • Drop-off in one of our stores: We have designated drop-off locations in many of our stores. Simply drop off your gift and we'll take care of the rest.
