Help make Christmas magical for families in need 

Christmas is meant to be the most wonderful time of the year, where friends and family come together to share gifts and good cheer. But with the financial and emotional pressures of the festive season, along with the ever-rising cost of living, we know many will find the holiday season more difficult. 

That’s where Family Action comes in. They believe every family deserves a magical Christmas – that’s why we’re supporting Family Action’s ‘Make Theirs Magic’ Toy and Gift Appeal and asking if you’d be happy to help us support it too. With your help, we can make a real difference to these families’ Christmas, and it couldn’t be easier to get involved. 

How can you help make a difference to someone’s Christmas?

There are two simple ways to help - you can either buy a gift via Amazon or make a Just Giving donation.

Buy a gift

  1. Visit our Amazon wishlist or scan the QR code to view our pre-selection of toys and games. Each gift is labelled with an age range, plus our target quantity, so you can see how many gifts we need and how many have already been purchased. 

  2. Choose your gift(s) from the list and add to your basket. There’s a selection of gifts between £5 and £30, for different genders and ages.

  3. Proceed to checkout as you would normally and make sure to select Gift Registry Address (Joanne Lean) as your delivery destination.

  4. Buy your gift(s) by Monday 27 November and confirm the delivery date is scheduled before Wednesday 29 November. We need to make sure the presents are delivered to us by 29 November.

  5. Complete your purchase. Your gift(s) will be sent straight to our LV= office in Bournemouth, where a team of volunteers will be on hand during December to wrap and ship them to Family Action, who will distribute them to families in time for Christmas.

Make a donation

If you’d prefer to donate to Family Action instead, you can do that through our JustGiving page.

Christmas toys

We're proud to be partnered with Family Action - they’re offering a sleigh-load of practical and emotional support to families through their FOOD clubs, financial grants, FamilyLine and their Toy Appeal.

Last year, we sent over 1,000 toys and raised more than £2,500 together. We’re hoping we can do the same again this year and really appreciate any support you can offer. 

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Jennifer Brooker who’ll be happy to help.

Thanks for your help supporting families in need.
