How you can support the High Peak toy appeal

People doing their Christmas shopping this year are being asked to buy an extra gift for a child who may get nothing on Christmas morning.

High Peak Toy Bank Appeal is collecting presents for those who are unlikely to be given any.

They are looking for dolls, teddies, baby clothes, bath toys, jigsaws, cars, colouring books, crayons, books, family games, skipping ropes, frisbees, bubbles, chalks, hair accessories, gloves, scarves, hats, clothes, gift vouchers, toiletries and dressing-up outfits.

Donated gifts should be unwrapped so the parents they are donated to can select which present would be best for each child. Donations of wrapping paper are also needed.

Last year the appeal managed to collect more than 800 toys which were distributed to needy families throughout the High Peak.

You can drop gifts off at W Potts and Son in New Mills, TSB in Buxton, Little Cherubs in Chapel, Secret Sorting Office in Whaley Bridge and at Chinley Day Nursery.
