Helping those in need this Christmas

Helping those in need this Christmas

The Tameside Christmas Toy Appeal at Tameside College is set to be bigger than ever this year, helping to make the festive period special for everyone.

With this year’s theme being ‘teen gifts’, students and staff members have been asked to donate toiletries, gift sets, books, gadgets, creative toys and gift vouchers.

The donated gifts will be given to young people living in poverty across Tameside in time for Christmas by Tameside4Good.

Gifts can be donated via the Tameside4Good appeal boxes which will be placed in the college’s reception area from Monday 3rd December until Friday 14th December.

Gail Clifford, central support and enrichment manager at Tameside College, said: “As a further education college we help the local community’s young people to advance their skills and employability, however we also feel that we have a real responsibility to support them in other ways and the Toy Appeal is one way of doing this. Please do donate, even if it’s just a small item it could really make someone’s Christmas great.”
