Sale Sharks have teamed up with the Toy Appeal charity once again to make sure kids in some of the most deprived areas of the North West have toys to play with this Christmas.
The Cheshire-based Toy Appeal charity was set up in 2013 by Dee and Chris Drake and it’s gone on to supply more than 55,000 sacks of toys to youngsters living in poverty across the region.
This Christmas Your Sharks are asking you, the Sharks Family, to dig deep and help the charity reach its target of supporting more than 12,000 children this year alone.
You can get involved by dropping off NEW toys outside the West Stand ahead of Sunday’s Investec Champions Cup game against Stade Francais.
Sale Sharks’ Sales and Marketing Director Claire Butters said: “The Toy Appeal is a fantastic charity that has helped so many young people in some of the most deprived parts of our region enjoy a special Christmas.
“Last year we were blown away by the response from players, staff and fans alike, and with the cost of living continuing to rise, everyone at the club is buzzing about the chance to help out again.
“The players and staff will all be bringing in toys and we want our Sharks Family to support us too. Together we can make a real difference to the lives of so many children.”
The Toy Appeal aims to provide a toy sack with eight carefully selected items. You can donate a new toy of any size for a child:
· Main present (appropriate for a specific child’s age)
· Stocking filler
· Board game / puzzle
· Arts & crafts item
· Teddy / Doll (appropriate for a specific child’s age)
· Ball / sports item
