The Original 106 Christmas Appeal
The Original 106 Christmas Appeal 2017
THANK YOU for being part of this year’s Original 106 Christmas Appeal ….we asked if you could help provide MORE festive cheer where it’s needed here in the North East, by donating not only brand new toys, but also non-perishable foods to help stock local food banks which struggle to keep up with demand at this time of year, and your generosity never fails to amaze us.
We’re still looking for donations of foodstuffs – the deadline for this is Thursday 21st December.
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 toy 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.
