Christmas Gifts

This year we need to collect enough new toys and food to give out to over 2000 families and 4500 children at Christmas time.

As a small local charity, we are entirely dependent on the generosity of the local community for support.

Here’s how you can help:

- Donate a new toy, book or gift suitable for a child aged 0-18. Don’t forget older children! Gadgets, toiletries, sports kit, jewellery make great gifts.

- Donate non-perishable and in date food e.g. tinned fish, meat, beans, tomatoes, fruit, rice, cereal, tea, coffee, confectionary, treats

- Organising a collection in your school, church or office? Download our Christmas Should Be About More Than Survival poster and spread the word about our appeal. For additional copies A4 or A5, please email

- Make a financial donation to our appeal by giving online or alternatively send a cheque to Wood Street Mission, 26 Wood Street, Manchester, M3 3EF.

Remember we help thousands of families at Christmas time so need donations in plenty of time. Call 0161 834 3140 to book a space on our van. Our last collection date is Friday 16 December.
