THE Harvey Centre are thrilled to announce that thanks to the generous donations from the local community, their Christmas Toy Donation appeal has been an amazing success and will be bringing joy to lots of children this Christmas.
The appeal asked people to donate toys and presents in the run up to Christmas which would be passed on to The Safer Places Women’s and Childrens Refuge who support and provide a safe place for families in need.
Between 1st – 15th December, kind-hearted individuals were able to donate toys and gifts in the shopping centre and thanks to the generosity of the local community, The Harvey Centre received an overwhelming number of donations.
The appeal also received amazing support from some of The Harvey Centre’s suppliers and partners including CAM, CSI, ASG, and Jacksons Lifts. Centre retailers including The Works, HMV & Phoenix Resources also contributed donations to the appeal.
Donations included books, games, crafts activities, teddies and toys for all ages. The gifts were collected on December 16th by The Safer Places Women’s and Childrens Refuge to ensure that the children who will be under the care of the refuge this Christmas can enjoy them over the festive period.
Bryan Young, Centre Manager for The Harvey Centre said, “I am really moved by the generosity of the local community. Times are hard but that has not stopped people giving whatever they could to help support others.
The Safer Places Women’s and Childrens Refuge does amazing work to support vulnerable children within the community and we are proud to be helping them bring some festive cheer this Christmas. The amount of donations we received in such a short space of time is an incredible achievement so a BIG thank you to everyone who supported the appeal and thank you to our tenants and business partners who kindly helped to boost the number of gifts we are now able to donate.
