Tameside Toy Appeal 2021: Where you can donate

Action Together's Toy Appeal, supported by your Tameside Reporter and Tameside Radio, has now officially launched and you can start donating gifts at drop-off points across the borough.

Christmas will be a very difficult time this year for many families in Tameside, particularly those living in poverty.

In response to these unprecedented times, the Tameside Toy Appeal 2021 is needed now more than ever.

This year the appeal will run differently:

  • A team of volunteer Doorstep Elves and Sleigh Drivers will collect gifts from your doorstep and deliver to local families.
  • You can safely donate toys at one of the local drop-off points across Tameside. The drop-off points are listed below.
  • You can donate online on the dedicated JustGiving page.
  • You can help spread the word by sharing with family, friends, and colleagues using #TamesideToyAppeal

Watch the video above to see how you can support this year's appeal. 

All gifts donated to the Tameside Toy Appeal will be given to Tameside children living in poverty.
