Sugababes: Too Lost in YouiTunesAmazon

Minster FM Toy Appeal

 Donate a toy to a disadvantaged 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.



This year we’re here to help with our partners at Monks Cross Shopping Park.

If you can afford just one extra toy this year, please donate it to Minster FM's Toy Appeal. Please ensure the toy is brand new and unwrapped so we can be certain it goes to the right child.

You can drop off your toy to us at our sponsorship partners locations below or at any of our collection points.

You have until Sunday 10th of December to get your toys to the collection points below. This is so that our team of Wrapping Elves can get the toys prepared and ready to be shipped out to the charities in our sleigh in time for Christmas!


We will be collecting toys on Monday 6th November to Sunday 10th December.
