Toy Collection for East Cheshire Home Start

Home Start Toy Collection during November and December

Home Start is a Local Community network of trained volunteers helping families with young children through challenging times.

There is no judgement, just compassion, confidential help and expert support.

This year has been a difficult, lonely, frustrating and anxious time for many families in our East Cheshire area.

Kathryn Dewick and her team have worked tirelessly throughout, with Zoom craft sessions, pram walks, social distancing park picnics, and many phone calls offering a listening ear and encouraging words.

Our gifts will be treasured by all the children and gratefully received by parents who are suffering economic hardship.

Please buy New Toys for 0-5 year olds.

Wrap and label your gift
