Angel Trust Toy Appeal

This Christmas The Angel Trust are calling on the help and support of the community to meet the needs of those who are most vulnerable and suffering hardship.  May we call upon your generosity and encourage you to select an extra gift /toy on your shopping list over the next few weeks prior to the 13th December. This will then allow us to distribute that element of  surprise to those who might otherwise not have anything to enjoy or celebrate. The gifts/toys MUST be new and unused.

Gift ideas may include :

  • 0-3 years  Soft Toys, Cot Mobiles, Bath Toys, Nursery Rhyme CD's. 

  • 3-5 years Books, Cars, Dolls, Educational Toys, Colouring Books + Pencils /Wax Crayons. 

  • 5-9 years Dolls, Action Figures, Colouring Sets. 

  • 9-12 years Games, Sports Equipment, Footballs, Gloves, Hair Accessories.

  • 13-16 years Books, Toiletries ( non - allergic ) Hats, Gloves, Scarves. 

The Toys / Gifts can be dropped off Monday – Friday  9:00 – 17:00 at the Angel Trust Hub – Belvedere House, Kingsway, Bishop Auckland, DL14 7JN (former Belvedere WMC).   Alternatively, if you wish to collect items with family, friends and colleagues we will arrange a convenient collection by one of the Angel Trust team.

The Angel trust will engage with the appropriate services and agencies including mental health teams and food banks to ensure fair and appropriate distribution to those, especially in need.
