Christmas Toy Appeal

If you can’t get out to make your donation, toys can also be collected from your home. Call Community Links on 020 7473 2270 for collections. Alternatively, if you feel a bit out of touch in knowing which toys are going to delight Newham’s youngsters you can send a cheque so volunteers can buy toys on your behalf.
