Halton Christmas Toy Appeal

The organisers of the Halton Christmas Toy Appeal are celebrating their best year yet.

More than £300 and hundreds of brand-new toys have been collected at Merseyflow’s walk-in centre in Runcorn for the campaign.

It means disadvantaged children across Halton will get an extra gift from Santa this year.

The aim of the Appeal, run by Widnes-based mum of four Nicky Woodward, is to make sure less fortunate children from across Halton have something to enjoy this Christmas.

Since the Appeal first launched five years ago, over 300 local babies and children up to 18 have benefited from the campaign.

The Mersey Gateway Crossings Board staff have contributed to the best year yet for toys collected, with four large boxes of brand-new toys donated to disadvantaged children in the area.

The money will be used by the Halton Christmas Toy Appeal to buy additional age – appropriate toys which will be distributed to children in some of Halton’s most deprived areas.

Mersey Gateway Crossings Board have been pleased to support the Halton Christmas Toy Appeal. Supporting the valuable work of Nicky and her team has seen all the team contribute and boost the worthy Appeal on behalf of those in need in Halton.
