To all parents and carers,
Please see the letter below regarding the toy give away at Forgwood, 11th December 2016.
Christmas Big Free Toy Giveaway Sunday 11th December 2016, Forgewood Community Centre, Motherwell
Please would you be able to inform families in your school who may require support this festive period, that there will be a FREE TOY giveaway on Sunday the 11th of December. The event is being held at the Forgewood Community Centre, 2 Dinmont Crescent, Motherwell ML1 3TT. Doors open at midday and close at two pm.
We are a group of friends who want to help those families who find Christmas difficult. No child should be without something on Christmas morning and no parent should be in debt to bring a smile to their child’s face. Although there are groups that help those in need, they do not always reach every child and family that need their help. That is why the toy giveaway is open to ALL. That is why we would encourage you to take the time to notify your school community. Councillors Michael Ross and Paul Kelly are both supporting this event.
A Toy Giveaway has already been held in Wishaw this year. An article about the event is available in this week’s Wishaw Press. Many people generously supplied, toys, games, books and even children’s clothes. So with your support, we hope to give more children a Merry Christmas.
In the anticipation of helping more children in Motherwell, we will need to gather more toys, games and books. Therefore, would you be able to collect used toys etc? We can organize a collection on the 9th of December. The hall is also open for donations between 4-7pm on the 10th. This would be a great event to have your more senior students who are working towards awards (e.g. Caritas) to participate in. If they want to take part or run a toy drive please let me know.
So please spread the word and help us spread some Christmas cheer in 2016.
