WE RELY ON YOU
We cater for up to 2,300 children through our projects each year and cannot operate without our incredible volunteers and our supporters. Your donations ensure that we can provide lifelong memories to families through our Christmas events and promote education and families / communities through distribution of our Banana Boxes.
Our charity takes donations of new or pre-loved toys to give as gifts at our Christmas events and throughout the year as part of our Banana Box Toy Project.
We need donations of the following items:
- Small toys
- Puzzles / games
- Children’s books
Find your nearest drop off point or contact us for more information. All donations must be complete and in good condition.

We rely on financial donations to help with the delivery of our projects and to purchase new items for our Banana Boxes.
- £2 will help us to purchase a new stationery set and notebook to support school work.
- £5 will help us to purchase an age-appropriate book, game or puzzle and will ensure that we can provide electronic toys with “batteries included”.
- £10 will purchase sensory items for children with special educational needs.
All our fundraising events and activities are organised and run by volunteers, many of whom work full time. As our charity grows, we are looking for new people to help us grow the Banana box project and bring joy to more struggling families across the festive period.
We need volunteers to help:
- Collect, check and clean donated toys
- Bake treats for our fundraising events
- Assist in organising and running parties
- Arrange fundraising events
Please contact us if you are interested in helping out in any capacity..
We also work with a number of organisations who support our charitable aims from providing convenient drop off locations for donated toys to providing resources and funding to support children with special education needs and disabilities. We welcome any offers of corporate support, please contract us if your business can help.
