Maple Walk School is delighted to be supporting local charity Little Village with this year's OneGift Christmas appeal.
We will be collecting new toys for 25 local children who are either homeless and/or vulnerable.
With 87,000 homeless children in London, Christmas can be a challenging time for many.
Each class has 2 to 3 named children to collect for and we hope our pupils will feel inspired to support Little Village by donating a toy or other suitable stocking filler.
As many of these children are in bedsits or B&Bs, they do not have a lot of space and so only gifts that can fit in our gift bags please!
A list of suggested items can be found below:
Toys Include age appropriate items that children will immediately embrace such as new dolls or stuffed toys (with CE label), teething toys, toy trucks, harmonica, yo-yo, skipping rope, ball, small puzzles, lego etc.
Craft Supplies Pens, pencils & sharpeners, playdoh, crayons or felt pens, stamps & ink pad sets, writing pads or notebooks & paper, colouring & picture books etc.
Hygiene Items Toothbrush and toothpaste, bars of wrapped soap, comb or hairbrush, flannel, shower gel.
