Toy Appeal

Working with Dee Drake who runs a toy appeal across  Manchester and Cheshire to provide toys for those children who would not otherwise receive anything at Christmas.


The objectives we are working towards here are:

  • Trusting relationships exist between schools and families

  • No child within the Family Zone goes without presents at Christmas

  • The effects of financial poverty on families are reduced

  • Children receiving gifts feel happier

  • Families are closely engaged with their school


We worked closely with each of the Family Zone primary schools who were invited to refer in any family they felt needed this extra support at Christmas.  For those families referred in, every child between the age of 0-18 would receive a full sack of gifts including a main present, stocking filler, arts & crafts, sporty item and cuddly toy.

We were delighted that 876 children from across the Family Zone received gifts this Christmas!
