Rotherham’s Christmas Toy Appeal 2023

by | 5 November 2023 | Notice, Rotherham, Support Group

Rotherham’s Christmas Toy Appeal will be officially launched at an event at Parkgate Shopping on Monday 6th November, from 6.00pm to 7.00pm.

The organisers are asking for your support again this year to give the neediest children and young people in Rotherham a gift to open on Christmas morning.

The Christmas Toy Appeal receives requests from professionals working closely with the families so they can identify the most in need. The elves are not aware of whom the gifts are going to but choose based on ages and add a book and soft toy to make it extra special.

The appeal is able to operate due to dedicated volunteer elves that work extremely hard to ensure all the requests are ready for collection on time so they can be delivered to the families on time.
There are various ways you can help with the appeal:

  • Pick a tag off a Christmas tree at Parkgate Shopping, purchase a gift and hand it into any shop on Parkgate Shopping. These are collected by the elves on a regular basis.
  • Hand a gift into your local library who are again collecting for the appeal.
