An appeal that provides Christmas presents for the children of Banbury’s poorer families begins this November.
The appeal means that children who wouldn’t normally receive presents will wake up on Christmas Day to find their dreams have come true.
Mayor Gordon Ross is asking residents to donate toys that can be distributed to parents who cannot afford to buy presents for their children at a ‘giving’ time of the year.
Toys – which can be new, or second hand in excellent condition – can be donated at Banbury Town Hall between 9am and 4pm Monday to Thursday, and from 9am to midday on the Friday during appeal week.
The toys should be suitable for boys and girls aged from baby to teenager. All donations will be handed over to children’s centres in Banbury who will ensure they go to the right homes.
“Some families in Banbury, for various reasons, have no money to spend on presents for their children, and cannot, therefore, make Christmas Day the special occasion the rest of us take for granted.
“Over many years, generous people in Banbury and the surrounding area have come forward to help those families. Once again this year the appeal is important to those who cannot give their children a ‘real’ Christmas.”
“I hope everyone who goes out Christmas shopping will buy a gift and donate it to this worthwhile cause.”
