Currys donates to Newark Salvation Army Christmas toy appeal





For the seventh year in a row a high-street retailer has donated hundreds of items towards a charity toy appeal.

In an effort to ensure that no child wakes up on Christmas morning with no gift to open, colleagues from Currys customer repair centre in Newark donated gifts to the Newark Salvation Army Christmas Present Appeal.

Over £2,000 worth of toys, games, toiletries and electronic items were donated by the start of December.

The donations were collected by Newark Salvation Army Captain Matt Elsey ready to distribute to as part of their toy appeal which helps over 300 families at this time of the year.

Captain Elsey said “Once again we are so grateful for all the gifts we have received and which make a big difference to our toy appeal.

“We are anticipating giving out gifts to over 600 children this Christmas and so every gift matters, especially this year when many are being impacted by the rise in the cost of living.

“Once again, we thank Currys for their generosity.”

This marks the end of a busy period of charitable work by Currys, having donated to charities like Guide Dogs, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance, Newark Emmaus Trust, Children’s Bereavement Centre and Beaumond House Hospice Care.
