We are working with a range of organisations to offer gifts to vulnerable households in Castle Vale this Christmas. Including older persons, vulnerable individuals who may be alone this year, and children whose parents may struggling to arrange presents. If you could offer donations or if you know of someone in need of a lift this festive season, fill the below form out to get in touch. 

Toy Appeal

We believe that every child deserves to experience the magic of Christmas and we understand 2020 has been a tough year for everyone, so our team of elves are here to help.

Our team of volunteers are taking donations of toys to help families who might not otherwise be able to afford to put presents under the tree for their children this Christmas. If you could donate a gift for a child this Christmas then please drop your donations to The Sanctuary.

You can donate any toy or gift which is:

  • New or in good condition
  • Not gift wrapped
  • Suitable for a child aged 0-16 years old

(Please note we can’t accept electrical or battery operated items)

We are taking donations up until December 14th whether it’s toys, crafts, books, board games or gadgets, this year more than ever, a gift from you would bring joy to a vulnerable child and help make their Christmas magic.
