Toys & Teens 2021 ~ Reading Family Aid

The Toys and Teens Appeal 2021 is BACK! 

Once again we are running a Toys and Teens Appeal for Christmas in place of our more normal huge toy appeal.

Every single £ you donate will go towards buying a present for Reading's most disadvantaged children. Children who would otherwise receive very little, if anything, this Christmas.

We are also accepting some toy donations. There will be three Pop-Up Donation Points operating on three different days this year. Please bring any donations of new or 'as new' toys, books and gifts for children aged 0-16 to: 

  • Sunday 14 November 11:00 – 15:00 – Big Yellow Self Storage, Rose Kiln Lane, Reading, RG2 0JZ
  • Saturday 20 November 11:00 – 15:00 – Woodley Town Centre Precinct, Headley Road, Woodley, Reading, RG5 4JZ
  • Saturday 27 November 11:00 – 15:00 – Tesco Extra, Portman Road, Reading RG30 1AW?

Or donate at Lower Earley Library, Chalfont Cl, Earley, Reading RG6 5HZ any time until Dec 4th during opening hrs 9.30 – 5pm (7PM on Thursdays, 4.30PM on Saturday, closed Wednesdays and Sundays)

Please don't take donations to any of these locations at any other times than specified - we won't be there!
