Christmas Toy Appeal 2019

This Christmas our little patients and their families are in great need of your help. Just one present will make a huge difference over the Christmas period in the hospital.

Santa never forgets any child in Temple Street. He knows the names of all the kids who will have the hospital as their home this Christmas. He’ll make sure their presents get delivered to the right bed in Temple Street, but sometimes even Santa needs a little help!

Donating toys is a simple way for you to make a real difference to the lives of our sick patients who will have to spend the Christmas period in the hospital, instead of at home with their families.

Getting involved in this year’s Christmas Toy Appeal, means you will help make a child’s Christmas. We have included a list below of the toys that are on our patient’s wish lists. We care for children from their first day in this world, right up to the eve of their 16th birthday. Our wish is that every child gets a toy that they will love and cherish this Christmas.

If you would like to get involved, please purchase a toy from the lists below and contact us to schedule a drop off time at Temple Street.
