Christmas Toy Appeal

Help make an Island child’s Christmas this year by donating a toy to the Official Isle Of Wight Christmas Toy Appeal.

The toy appeal is back for 2016, collecting gifts for less fortunate children on the Isle of Wight, and Islanders are being urged to donate gifts (of around £10 in value) for children who may receive nothing else this year.
From today (Friday 18th November) you can take drop your gifts off across the Isle of Wight at the businesses listed below.
If you would like to make a cash donation to the appeal rather than buy a gift you can do so here.
