Christmas Toy Drive 2018
After such an amazing Christmas Toy Drive last year (782 toys in total!) we are set for an even bigger Christmas Toy Drive this year!
As we all know, Christmas is the time of year for love and cheer, hope and togetherness - a magical season for giving and generosity. Unfortunately many children in Glasgow face a very different reality with hundreds of them waking up to what may seem like just another day.
Birth, Baby & Beyond is hear to change that! With your help BB&B is aiming even higher this year - we are looking to collect even more new toys, clothing items and gifts to be given to children in need this Christmas!
How wonderful would it be if we could provide 800 children with a new toy, clothing item or gift from Santa! Children, that without these gifts wouldn't wake up to a present from Santa on Christmas morning?
Let's pull together and keep Christmas magical!
Who receives the Christmas Gifts?
All of the Partnership Organisations that are currently registered with us will be able to refer family in need to receive a new gift from Santa completely free of charge. Families with siblings can also request a gift from Santa for each child up to the age of 16 years.
How do I donate a new Christmas Gift?
We will be collecting new toys, clothing and gifts for children aged from birth to 16 years from Wednesday 1st November. Items can be dropped off at our shop during our opening hours, or can be collected from your home - please contact our team to arrange a collection.
Gifts can be wrapped and labelled with the gender and age group or handed in just as they are - we have a team of elves on wrapping duty!
*** Please note that all items donated to our Christmas Toy Drive are required to be new in original packaging ***
