WATCH Tameside 4 Good Christmas Toy Appeal reaches new heights
Thursday 22nd December 2016 @ 11:32 by Tom Greggan

Organisers have said a huge thank you this week to everyone who has made the Tameside Toy Appeal another amazing success.

It is only the second year the appeal has officially been run by Tameside4Good in association with Tameside Council’s Early Years Help Team and supported by Tameside Rotary, the Tameside Reporter and Tameside Radio.

Huge quantities of new toys have been donated to children’s centres across the borough, ready for delivery on Christmas Day for children living locally in poverty and who otherwise would receive very little or nothing at all this festive season.

Tameside4Good’s Amy Rowland, who has once again spearheaded the appeal, thanked everyone for their generous donations, not least the dozens of local businesses that participated, acting either as collection points for toys or where staff have rallied round to donate or raise money for even more toys.

“It’s been another fantastic year and we couldn’t have done it without you – thank you all so much,” said Amy.
