Marlene Reid Centre 2020 Christmas Toy Appeal




  The Marlene Reid Centre, has been running a Christmas Toy Appeal for over 30 years. As a local charity they are always looking to support the community. Local children from North West Leicestershire benefit from the appeal. Last year more than 140 local children living here in North West Leicestershire received a sack of toys on Christmas morning from the appeal. In the face of the worldwide pandemic, we are expecting many more local families to be facing tremendous hardship throughout the festive season due to redundancies, restrictions and isolation from much needed support networks.

   Can you send a little love this Christmas? New toys, books and games? Any donations should be suitable for a child aged from 0 to 17 and donations are required before 1st December 2020 for them to be allocated to the appropriate child in time for Christmas. You can take them direct to the Marlene Reid Centre in Coalville at 85 Belvoir Road.

    Or leave them in St John's Church porch when church is open Tuesdays-Thursdays of each week 10am - 4pm. We will then get them to the Marlene Reid
