Blantyre Toy Drive needs you

We’re partnering with local business, Glen Travel to bring Santa to Blantyre on Saturday 17th December! kids are going to LOVE this!

The annual Blantyre Toy Drive is underway and we hope many, many local children come along to Glen Travel to meet Santa and receive a beautiful, gift. Entry is free, but you can of course make a little donation at the door if you visit.

Donations have been coming in from local individuals throughout November and December, with many toys also directly handed in, promising to make the day a BIG success! This is a huge undertaking, to bring a quality free gift to as many Blantyre children as possible! Things are difficult for most families just now, so it’s as important as ever to reach out to everybody within the community.

We’re hoping to light up loads of little festive faces (from babies to age 12) and hope YOU can help either by buying a small toy or making a small financial donation.

There are 4 different ways YOU can directly help! >>>>

  4. Can your organisation help in any way to make the event more successful? Volunteers? Donating something or a service perhaps? Perhaps help us decorate the grotto?
