Burnley Together are proud to be running the town’s Christmas Present Appeal for the second year.

For hundreds of families and individuals in our local community, the financial burden of Covid-19 and subsequent struggles have caused an unparalleled challenge.

Please support us by donating new, unwrapped toys and gifts for children who might not otherwise receive a Christmas present this year. The gifts will then be distributed to those in need.

This year more than ever, a gift from you could bring joy to a local child and help make their Christmas.

How your business can help

Joining our Toy Appeal is a great way to spread some festive cheer and engage your team to support vulnerable children and young people in our local community.

Group collections

Colleagues can buy presents individually and arrange for them to be delivered to us through your Present Appeal coordinator.

Group donations

Collect monetary donations from your colleagues and we will select and deliver the presents on your behalf.

Alternative Secret Santa

If you usually organise a Secret Santa in the office, why not try something different this year? Instead of buying gifts for your colleagues, you could buy gifts for young people who may not otherwise receive a present.
