Christmas Toy Appeal 2017

Our families really need your help this Christmas. Will you add one more thing to your gift list this year?

✔ Letter to Santa
✔ Decorate the tree
Send a toy to a sick child
✔ Be Good

Santa never forgets any child in Temple Street. He knows the names of all the kids whose home will be hospital over Christmas. He’ll make sure their presents get delivered to the right bed in Temple Street. Sometimes even Santa needs a little help…

Donating toys is a simple way for you to make a real difference to the lives of sick children, children like Grace who spent her first Christmas in ICU.

This Christmas by making a special delivery to our hospital you will help make a child’s Christmas. We have included a list below of the toys that on our patient’s wish list this Christmas. 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 drop it into Temple Street Foundation or contact us for more information

We would appreciate if you did not wrap toys as all items must be checked before being given to patients.
