Newark Salvation Army toy appeal receives £400 of toy donations from Platform Home Ownership
A company has donated £400 worth of toys to support the Newark Salvation Army’s Christmas Toy Appeal.
Platform Home Ownership, which has a number of homes for sale at the Fernwood Meadows development, donating a range of toys suitable for children up to 16-years-old.
The Salvation Army’s toy appeal, aims to help spread the joy of Christmas to families whose children would otherwise not receive a gift.
Last year, they distributed more than 76,000 gifts nationally, however, as a result of the cost-of-living crisis the demand has been increased this year.
Matt Elsey, church leader at Newark Salvation Army, said: “We are so grateful for the bags of gifts we received towards our annual toy appeal from Platform.
“It makes such a difference to many families in our local community, we will be giving out gifts to over 500 children this year so every toy we receive really matters.
“Thanks to Platform for choosing to support our toy appeal this year.”
Sabina Cox, Platform marketing manager, said, “We are delighted to support the Salvation Army Toy Appeal in spreading joy this holiday season.
“Through this donation, we hope to help families provide gifts for their children this Christmas and spread warmth, love, and festive cheer to those in need.
“Here at Platform, we are passionate about giving back to the communities we serve, and hope to support the Salvation Army again in the future, along with other local charities and organisations.”
