Can you help Pride In Pill to make a child in hospital happy this Christmas? Many children will have an unpleasant Christmas this year because of having to stay in hospital. Due to this, Pride In Pill have decided to collect donations of toys and gifts throughout South East Wales. They aim to do toy appeals every year after the success of the last one.
Pride In Pill understands that no child should have a miserable or lonely Christmas. By donating a toy, you will be bringing a smile to a child’s face on Christmas day.
Paul Murphy has been the chairman of Pride In Pill, which he started back in 2014. Their sponsors and volunteers continue to support Newport’s homeless and help to keep South Wales tidy, right up to this day. They also works tirelessly alongside the public to ensure that hospitalised kids have a very Merry Christmas. If you’d like to get on board this toy appeal then here’s how…
Support Children In Hospitals This Christmas
From late October right up to the first week of December, there will be several drop off points around Newport and surrounding areas, where you can conveniently donate a toy. All we ask is that toys/gifts must be new and unwrapped. Our volunteers will be collecting and wrapping the toys during November and early December. You can also leave a note or card with the gift to add that special touch.
The drop off points for toys are at the following locations:-
Nationwide Building Society Branches – Newport, Cwmbran, Pontypool, Abergavenny
Asda – Pillgwenlly Branch Only!
Newport Bus Depot – Corporation Rd
R & N Inflatable Hire – Kingsway Shopping Centre
Starbucks – Kingsway Shopping Centre Branch Only!
The last collection date will be Saturday 11th December 2021, wrap the remaining presents and deliver them to all local hospitals on the 18th December, just in time for the kids to open their gifts on Christmas Day. If you can help by donating a toy, you will be helping us making hospitalised children happy.
