Tameside 4 Good has once again joined forces with Tameside Reporter, Tameside Radio and Tameside Council's Early Help Team, to run the Tameside Christmas Toy Appeal campaign.

The Tameside Christmas Toy Appeal is set to launch on Saturday 12th November with support from Rotary Club of Tameside.

Around 10,490 children in Tameside live in poverty.They won't wake up to find presents under a brightly lit tree. With your support, the Tameside Christmas Toy Appeal can change this. All toys donated are distributed to Tameside children living in poverty.

Can you help make this Christmas one to remember for a Tameside child? We need businesses and community centres across Tameside to sign up to be drop off points, support with logistics and storage.

Amy Rowlands, Tameside 4 Good fundraiser, commented: “Last Christmas, we were overwhelmed with the support which resulted in over £20,000 worth of toys being donated to disadvantaged children in Tameside.

“Once again we are seeking the support of local businesses and the community to help local children celebrate Christmas. Together we can make the Tameside Christmas Toy Appeal a resounding success. We will be asking our local community to donate a new, unwrapped toy for children aged from birth to eighteen years old, who may not receive a present. The toys are given to youngsters in need and we know this really makes a difference.”

The deadline for donations will be 15th December 2016.
