Christmas Toy Appeal

Christmas Toy Appeal

Working with Falkirk Council’s Social Work department and other local charities and organisations, The Howgate Centre helps coordinate the gift giving by opening its Help Desk for all donations of gifts.

Over the years we have developed strong partnerships with local companies and customers who donate every year which is fantastic to see as we know what a difference the gesture makes to children who otherwise would go without. 

We receive lots of gifts for younger children but we require even more for older children between 9yr – 17yr old so any gifts for these age groups would be really appreciated.    Once all gifts are wrapped, the relevant agencies ensure that they are distributed in plenty of time for Christmas.  

Shoppers are being asked to donate a new gift that is suitable for either a boy or girl aged from birth to 17 years of age and hand it unwrapped to the Help Desk located opposite Dorothy Perkins by Sunday 15th December.
