The Blantyre Toy Drive is back! Our fantastic, annual, campaign to put a smile on Blantyre children’s faces this Christmas time launches today! Aimed to specifically benefit the children of Blantyre.
We’re excited once again to partner with local travel agents, ‘Glen Travel’ and ‘Blantyre Telegraph’ and welcoming support of BSA this year, to host the “Blantyre Christmas Toy Drive 2019”
Our amazing jointly run campaign, launches today, 22nd October 2019 will run for the next 4 weeks, aiming to collect many new toys for children, both boys and girls from babies to 10 year olds.
We plan 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 Stonefield Public Park on Sunday 24th November 2019 will be delighted to receive a very worthwhile, quality gift.
Put a Smile on a Blantyre childs face
As always, Blantyre Toy Drive success relies entirely upon YOUR kind assistance! We’re hoping church groups, schools, clubs will all get behind this and support the campaign by taking part, as well as individuals, that’s YOU sitting there at home.
HOW DO DONATE.
1. Buy any toy(s) with a value of no more than £5 and as many as you want, then hand it in to Glen Travel’s shop at Glasgow Road (opposite Station Road junction), Blantyre during midweek or Saturday opening hours.
2. Or alternatively, donate whatever you wish financially at our Official Committee Donation Page here https://blantyrecommunitycommittee.com/donate/ so we can buy the toys directly. We’d love to see residents and businesses help out.
With YOUR help, Santa’s Grotto will be a marvel for those young children this year, and quality brand new 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. Hamilton and surrounding towns run something similar on a huge scale, so we hope YOU ALL want to support tour local campaign.
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 up to and including £5. 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.
This is going to be Blantyre’s festive miracle! Please share.
