CHARITY OF THE MONTH – CHRISTMAS TOY APPEAL 2019

Gladstone Brookes has rounded off its year of giving with the now traditional contribution to the Christmas Toy Appeal for underprivileged children in the North West.

The dress down money of £400 was boosted to £1,000 by management so four teams of Christmas elves could descend on Smyths Toy Superstore in St Helens with the happy task of buying as many toys as possible for the money available.

An extra £100

As they started to put their purchases through the till the management of Smyths gave them a 10% discount which meant the four teams of two had another quick trip round the store to spend their extra £25 each.

Lisa McCann of Smart Storage who organise the toy appeal was full of praise for the on-going support GB has given, saying: “This is a brilliant selection of toys you have bought, ranging from infants to teenagers.

“It’s sad to say in this day and age that there will be many underprivileged children waking up on Christmas morning with no present for them under the Christmas tree.

But thanks to the generosity of Gladstone Brookes’ staff and management we have been able to change that for at least some of them.”

Organisations which will benefit from the appeal include: the Starlight Children’s Unit at Wythenshawe Hospital, Beaumont Primary School in Warrington, the Seashell Trust of Cheadle, Home Start in Trafford, Stretford and Wigan, UTC University Warrington, and Halton Housing in Widnes.

It’s hard to believe that in 21st Century Britain there are families so strapped for cash that they can’t even afford to put food on the table. Or that they have to rely on the generosity of others just to keep going.
