Thank you to everyone who supported our Christmas Toy Appeal

Dawn with donations

As our Christmas Toy Appeal draws to a close, we would like to thank everyone for their generosity and kindness in helping those less fortunate than ourselves.

Warm clothing, gifts and toys have flooded into our head office where they have been sorted and distributed to many local projects throughout our diocese, enabling many people in need to have a warmer, more cheerful Christmas.

We snapped a quick photo of one generous donor, Dawn Laybourn, pictured, who arrived recently with bags of toys which she and her partner, Malcolm, bought especially to donate to us.

Relationships Manager, Nicola Milne said, "People have truly shown that Christmas is the season for giving and many individuals and families have already benefited from the donations we have received. We send our heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported our appeal and I would especially like to thank staff at the AA Newcastle for organising a special collection of items on our behalf."

Our charity's Red Van will continue to distribute the donated items right up until Friday this week.
