Steve has worked closely with our project lead Maz Surti to run the toy appeal throughout December, generating an an incredible amount of support from Steve’s football friends, our Facebook followers and the local community.
We are delighted to announce that we have received 600 gifts all new and wrapped. Our volunteers have been out on the road since Monday delivering some of these gifts. We’ve donated toys to St Gabriel’s Church which will be given to Acorns and distributed gifts to hostels, women’s centres, councils and other community groups.
A huge thank you to Steve, Maz and all those that have supported our appeal, including the many volunteers that have given up their time to make it a special Christmas for many families during these difficult times.
