Christmas Appeal

🎅🏻🤶🏻 It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

😣 But it can also be the most stressful time of the year for families who have little or no disposable income.

🎄Last year, we combined our donations with Sacriston Salvation Army and Langley Moor Salvation Army, 120 families received toy/gift donations so children had presents to open on Christmas morning.

We are now starting the 2021 Christmas appeal in partnership with Sacriston Salvation Army.

If you would like to contribute you can:

1. Drop off a new and unwrapped gift to Sacriston Salvation Army Care and Share Shop - Front Street, Sacriston during shop opening hours.

2. Drop off a new and unwrapped toy at Nettlesworth Community Centre - please message us to find out when centre staff are on duty.

3. You can also make financial contributions by donating a gift voucher, or bank transfer to Sacriston Youth Project’s charity bank account. - please do not give cash or make payments into anyone’s personal bank account.

We would be grateful if donations could be made/dropped off before Saturday 13th November.

Suggested gifts:

* 0-3 years: dolls, teddy bears, cot mobiles, baby clothes, bath toys, CDs of suitable music and nursery rhymes, puzzles

* 3-5: dolls and action figures, cars, lorries, DVDs and CDs (music and nursery rhymes), colouring sets, pencils, crayons, books, puzzles

* 5-9: educational games & toys, stationery (colouring sets, pencils, crayons, school sets), CDs & family friendly DVDs, books, puzzles, wordsearch, crosswords
