Christmas Toy Appeal 2023
Martin Tett, Leader of Buckinghamshire Council, has reminded residents that the annual Christmas Toy Appeal has now launched. Run by local charity 'Inspire Bucks' this initiative is often the only way that some local children, in really disadvantaged situations, get a Christmas gift.

The appeal seeks donations of new toys and gifts and monetary donations for the charity to buy presents too. In the past the appeal has been overwhelmed by the generosity of local people who've donated. These gifts have made a huge difference to the Christmas experience of many children across the county.

The presents are given to local children in crisis, who are living in the care system or who are facing severe financial difficulty and we need gifts for all ages. The charity works with social workers, schools and food banks to identify recipients and all the children will receive at least one gift. Last year the appeal helped give a Christmas present to nearly 3,500 children in Buckinghamshire. It would be brilliant if you can help out.

The appeal tends to be shorter on gifts for 0-2 year-olds and teenagers, so if it's easier, if you are in a position to help, there's an appeal Amazon Gift List enabling you to purchase something direct.

And this link will take you straight to the 'Just Giving' donation page, if that's easier.

We thank you in advance for your generosity and for making such a difference to the lives of these local young people.

Buckinghamshire Council
