The 5p Bus Christmas Toy Appeal

November 2012

Our annual Christmas Toy Appeal has now been launched, with the aim of providing at least one gift for every child in the most deprived areas of our region. You could give a local child the only gift he or she receives this Christmas.

All we ask is that all donations are new toys or gifts suitable for boys or girls aged from under 1 year to 16 years. Teenagers are particularly difficult to buy a gift for and are often overlooked, so please spare a thought for them when you choose your gift.

All the donations will be distributed from our 5p Bus throughout December, in some of the poorest communities in the North East.

Gifts will be gratefully received up to Friday 21 December at St Cuthberts Care's Head Office in Newcastle, between 9am and 5pm Monday to Thursday and 9am to 4:30pm Friday.

You can also drop them off at the 5p Bus depot at Unit 9, Sands Industrial Estate, Swalwell, Gateshead, NE16 3DJ. The depot is usually open between 9am and 2pm Monday to Thursday and 11am to 4pm on Friday, but please call 0191 488 5031 to check before setting off.

If you require any further information, please contact Iris Boyd on 0191 228 0111 and she will be happy to help.
