Last chance to donate presents to Black Country Toy Appeal

Sandwell Residents are being reminded it’s the last chance to make donations in Sandwell for Santa’s Black Country Toy Appeal.

Donations of new items will be accepted in Sandwell Libraries up until Friday 15 December.

Hundreds of presents have already been donated in Sandwell thanks to the generosity of all those who have given. Items can include books, toys, pyjamas, dressing gowns and selection boxes.

Gifts must be new and unwrapped. They will be collected by elves who will give them to Santa so that he can distribute to children and young people in Sandwell and the Black Country. Sandwell Council’s Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Education, Cllr Simon Hackett said:

“I’d like to thank everyone who has been kind enough to drop presents off at collection points across Sandwell. We are overwhelmed by the generosity and have received hundreds of donated gifts since we began collecting at the end of November.

“I would encourage anyone who is in a position to do so to donate to this wonderful cause. Every donation received will help to bring joy to a local child who otherwise might not receive any Christmas presents.”

Toys will be collected from each of Sandwell’s libraries and delivered to Santa’s Black Country Toy Appeal headquarters in time for them to be distributed to families for Christmas.

More details, including opening hours of museums and libraries, can be found on the Sandwell Council website. Please do not leave donations outside libraries if they are closed.
