Newham Christmas Toy Appeal 2020
Why we need your help
Ambition, Aspire, Achieve runs a wide range of services, activities and clubs for disadvantaged, vulnerable and at risk children in Newham year round.
At Christmas each year, we organise, supported by the Newham Recorder and Community Links an annual appeal, now in it's 43rd year, which aims to provide for each child referred to the appeal, a Christmas stocking of new gifts specific to their age, abilities and needs including when possible, their most wished for gift, to open on Christmas morning.
Each child helped is living in poverty and experiencing multiple challenges and difficulties. This year in these unprecedented diffiuclt time for children in need, we are receiving more requests for help than ever before.
The children are referred to the appeal by a unique combination of all the areas family support and caring organisations – a combination that ensures the appeal reaches out to and helps the most disadvantaged, vulnerable and at risk children who are not being helped by anyone else and who, without the appeals help, will wake up on Christmas morning to an empty stocking and another day just the same as every other.
The difference that your help will make to so many is perhaps best summed up by the words of one young mother who on receiving a bag of gifts for her 3 children said "I can feel like a real mum now and on Christmas day my children will feel like real children. Thank you so much"
Thank you - for helping to fill the stockings.
