Chester’s Toy Appeal

This year’s Chester’s Toy Appeal, sponsored by Brett Martin Ltd, will be launched next week.

New, unwrapped toys, donated as part of the appeal, will be handed out to families in need so that children who would otherwise go without receive a present on Christmas Day.

Chesterfield’s marketing manager, Bridget Ball, said: “It is really important for me and everyone at the football club that we do our very best to ensure we help struggling families this Christmas.

“Last year we helped over 140 families to put a smile on their children’s faces. Over £10,000 worth of toys were donated to the appeal, which was fantastic.

“Please, if you can donate just one toy, it really will make a difference.”

Any family wishing to apply for a toy should make an application via the following link:

Donations can be taken to the main reception at John Pye Ltd on Sheffield Road, Chesterfield, every Wednesday and Thursday, from November 15 until December 13 (between 11am and 3pm).

Donations can also be taken to the main reception at the SMH Group Stadium, from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm (except on matchdays).
