Wood Street Mission Gift Appeal

Every child deserves a magical Christmas, regardless of circumstance. That is why we are once again proud to support Wood Street Mission with their Christmas Gift Appeal. We are reaching out to our community to join us in giving local children from struggling families a happy and memorable Christmas.

From Tuesday 7th November until Monday 4th December 2023, we will be collecting new, unwrapped toys, gifts or books, suitable for children and young people aged 0-14 years. The charity is particularly in need of gifts for children aged 0-2 years and 10-14 years. Families are asked to please bring their gift donations to the school office. Whether it is a toy, book, or special treat like chocolates or a selection box, every contribution is valuable. Wrapping paper, gift tags and sellotape are also much appreciated and ensure that each gift can be presented beautifully.

Gift ideas for each age group include:

  • 0-2 years:   soft books, musical toys, play mats, shakers, wooden blocks
  • 3-5 years:   role play sets, action figures, dolls, dinosaurs, Lego
  • 6-8 years:   activity books, superheroes, craft kits, colouring sets
  • 9-11 years:  board games, robots, magic sets, hair chalk, nail art
  • 12-14 years: sportswear, toiletries, jewellery, gadgets, make-up

We are sincerely grateful to everyone who can help us to bring joy to the lies of children in need. Families across Manchester and Salford will come to Wood Street Mission to choose gifts for their children from the selection donated by supporters like you and your contributions will make a meaningful difference in creating memorable Christmas moments for these families.

As a family focused school, championing and supporting others lies at the heart of everything we do.
