The Original 106 Christmas Appeal
The Original 106 Christmas Appeal 2017
As the nights draw in and thoughts turn towards the festive season we are again looking for your help….we want to provide MORE festive cheer where it’s needed here in the North East, by asking you to donate not only brand new toys…. but also donations of non-perishable foods to help stock local food banks which struggle to keep up with demand at this time of year.
All donations that you make to our appeal will be distributed by our partners in this appeal including:
- Community Food Initiatives North East (CFINE, who will distribute all our food-bank donations)
- Instant Neighbour
- Children First
- Salvation Army
So what kind of donations are we looking for? First and foremost, all donations MUST be brand new, newly purchased in in original, undamaged packaging. We will not accept donations that are not brand new.
We are looking for toys and gifts for children and young people, non-perishable foods and groceries to stock local food banks, and also warm winter items – see below for a detailed list.
You can drop your donations of to us at Original 106 – weekdays only during office hours; or at one of our collection points situated around the north east and listed below.
