A fantastic and worthwhile fundraising campaign is launched, aimed to specifically benefit the children of Blantyre this Christmas.
We’re excited to partner up with local travel agents, ‘Glen Travel’ to host the “Blantyre Christmas Toy Drive 2017!”
Our amazing jointly run campaign, launched on 1st November will run for a month and aims to collect many new toys for children, both boys and girls from babies to 10 year olds. Along with ‘Glen Travel’ on Glasgow Road, we hope to collect dozens of new toys of varying value, which will be given out to children at Blantyre’s forthcoming Festive Event by Santa himself!! Children attending Santa’s grotto at David Livingstone Centre on Sunday 26th November 2017 will be delighted to receive a very worthwhile, quality gift. As always with our annual toy drive, success relies entirely upon your kind assistance!
HOW DO DONATE.
1. Buy any toy(s) whatever value and as many as you want, then hand it in to Glen Travel’s shop at Glasgow Road, Blantyre during midweek or Saturday opening hours.
2. Or alternatively, donate whatever you wish financially at our Just Giving Page here https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/blantyrechristmastoydrive2017 so we can buy toys directly. You can even do this anonymously.
With YOUR help, Santa’s Grotto will be a marvel for those young children this year, and quality gifts given out for them to take home. The Toy Drive is important for Blantyre. It helps address poverty and promotes community spirit to the best of our collective ability. It’s YOUR chance to put something back into the community, and spread some festive happiness.
Important: We’re not looking for second hand toys, only new, unboxed items of any value. Why not get your local church, school, group, pub or organisation to help or donate? Please try to donate something, even £1 will buy a present. Thank you sincerely.
It’s going to be Blantyre’s festive miracle!”
