Everybody Sport and Recreation donate over 200 toys and sports equipment for families this Christmas.
Everybody Sport and Recreation have again been out and about this festive period delivering Christmas presents to children and families in need.
On Thursday 9th December, Everybody Sport and Recreation donated over 200 toys and sports equipment to the New Life Church in Congleton and to Barlow Motors Skoda in Crewe.
Toys and sports equipment donated to the New Life Church in Congleton will be distributed to families with their food bank hampers in the local area.
As well as this, Everybody Sport and Recreation donated 100 selection boxes for them to also include in the hampers.
Joanna at the New Life Church in Congleton shared
“This year we are aiming for 390 hampers, 500 bags of joy and 701 gifts, so this big, lovely donation today that we have had of these absolutely fantastic toys and sports equipment will go a long way to making a lot of children very happy this Christmas, thank you.”
The toys and sports equipment donated by Everybody Sport and Recreation to Silk 106.9 and Barlow Motors Skoda in Crewe will be distributed to families Cheshire wide this Christmas as part of this year’s annual toy appeal.
David Flavell Station Manager at SILK 106.9 shares
“This is our 23rd year and every year it gets bigger and better thanks to the people in east Cheshire. We make sure all the gifts are distributed to children in our area. Every year your generosity helps to put a smile on little faces on Christmas morning.”
As well as this, Everybody have donated a bag of balls and a bag of toys to The angels, who are doing a ‘Christmas Hope’ campaign, providing presents to children who will otherwise go without this Christmas. The toys will be put alongside what other schools and people have donated and a team of volunteers, who are helping children in need, have given parents a sack of presents to wrap for their children.
AndyBee, one of the Volunteer’s at The angels shares
“Knowing these children will have a smile on their face on Christmas morning makes all the effort worth it. Children are what Christmas is all about.”
Peter Hartwell, Chief Executive at Everybody Sport and Recreation commented
“We are delighted we have been able to support the New Life Church, The angels and the Annual Toy appeal to provide families in need with these toys and sports equipment. We hope children and families enjoy the toys and have lots of fun playing with them together.”
It is extremely important to Everybody Sport and Recreation to do this, giving back to the community is something they strive to do all year, but to donate toys and gifts to children at Christmas is the first thing on their list.
