Tameside Toy Appeal


Tameside Radio and Tameside Reporter are once again proud to support this year’s Tameside 4 Good Christmas Toy Appeal.

Each year the appeal, run by Tameside 4 Good and Action Together, and supported by Tameside Council, ensures every child living in poverty in the borough will receive a new toy on Christmas Day morning - something they may not otherwise have.

Statistics sadly show that one in four Tameside children are living in poverty.
Over the years the appeal has been able to donate literally thousands of new toys to families in need.
Many local businesses and schools have already signed up to support this year’s appeal - now all we need is you!

All new donated toys collected go to local children’s centres before being delivered (by Santa) in time for Christmas.

Thanks to your incredible generosity over the years we can all make a difference for those most in need.
All donations should be unwrapped and only brand new toys can be accepted.

There is always a higher demand for gifts for babies and teenagers, especially boys. 
All donations must be received by Friday, December 6 and they can be taken along to any of the drop-off points listed below. 

For more information about the appeal visit www.actiontogether.org.uk/winter-support or email info@actiontogether.org.uk or call 0161339 2345.

And once again - thank you for your help and generosity.
