Donate a Toy and Make a Difference to a Child this Christmas!

While most of us look forward to Christmas there are some children for whom it is just another day. Every year there are families who through no fault of their own dread the thought of the festive season;  people who can’t afford to treat their loved ones and won’t be sharing in the Christmas cheer.

teddy bearThis year we’re here to help with our partners at Toymaster and JCT600 Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen cars and commercial vehicles, York.

If you can afford to buy just one extra toy this year, please donate it to Minster FM's Toy Appeal.

You have until Sunday 11th December to drop off toys. Our elves will then get to work, wrapping each toy, and then shipping them out to charities and families in the JCT600 sleigh ready for Christmas!


How to donate toys...

Please ensure the toy is brand new and unwrapped so we can be certain it goes to the right child. You can drop off toys at our main drop-off points...

Every year we have a brilliant team of toy wrapping elves who volunteer to wrap all of the presents donated.

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered this year. We now have our full team assembled, and ready to get busy with the sticky tape and scissors.
