WE ARE THRILLED TO SEE SO MANY PLEDGES - THIS CAMPAIGN WILL CONTINUE TO OVERFUND UNTIL 1 DECEMBER SO LET'S SEE IF WE CAN RAISE AS MUCH AS WE CAN FOR SEFTON'S CHILDREN! Each year thousands of toys, gifts and stocking fillers are lovingly donated by kind-hearted residents, Sefton Council staff, partners and community groups to put a smile on the faces of Sefton’s children. Due to the current national COVID restrictions in place, the safety of Sefton’s communities is a priority so we are asking people to pledge money over the next 2 weeks so volunteers from Sefton Council can then purchase the toys and, following COVID guidelines, will then distribute all presents to children and young people, throughout the Borough on behalf of the Mayor. If we hit our target of £300, we will be able to provide gifts for a minimum of 30 children throughout the borough.

What we'll deliver:

  • Toys, pyjamas, slippers and hat & scarf sets to be delivered to children of all ages in Sefton

Why it's a great idea:

Each year thousands of toys, gifts and stocking fillers are lovingly donated by kind-hearted residents, Sefton Council staff, partners and community groups to put a smile on the faces of Sefton’s children. After a year quite like no other, there will be many families across the Borough who will receive gifts that will make all the difference and bring them some Christmas cheer.

Steps to get it done:

  • Reach our crowdfunding target
  • Purchase toys and gifts
  • Distribute all presents to children and young people, throughout the Borough on behalf of the Mayor.

Cllr Burns said: "We can all empathise with one another that 2020 has thrown a lot our way, and Christmas will feel very different for us all. So, this year it’s more important than ever for us to give what we can for others. People might not realise that a small gesture could go a long way to making this year special for Sefton’s children and families. We’ve seen incredible gestures of kindness and self-sacrifice right throughout the health crisis, and I know that we can count on our communities across Sefton to pull together once again this Christmas. I urge as many people as possible to get involved and pledge to our crowdfunding campaign!” For further information on the Mayor’s Christmas Toy Appeal please call or text 07837 863075.
