Christmas 2021

This year it is more important than ever to support struggling families and help children across Manchester and Salford have a happy Christmas.

At Christmas we provide new toys and gifts for children aged 0-14 years old, to make sure they have something special to open on Christmas Day.

Families come and choose the gifts they would like to give their children from the selection we are donated by supporters.

We need your help this year more than ever, find out how below. 

If you are struggling and need support with gifts for your children this Christmas, we want to help – please visit our Get Support page for more details.

Christmas Wish Lists

Our Christmas Wish Lists are now available on Amazon.  They’re by no means a comprehensive list and if you’d like to arrange deliveries from other retailers or deliver your gifts in person, we’d be very grateful. 


Set up your own fundraising page for work, school or your organisation – how about a Christmas Jumper Day! – and raise funds towards our Appeal.
