Berinsfield Toy Bank for Christmas 

Do you think you could make a donation?

The Toy Bank is a simple idea! The Berin Family Centre and the Dorchester Team are working together to support families on Berinsfield who have been affected by job losses or cuts to working hours because of the pandemic. We want to support these families particularly in the run up to Christmas when there is more financial strain on parents trying to afford presents for their children. We are asking for donations of brand new, kite marked toys/gifts to the Toy Bank to provide parents with presents to give to their young children and teenagers this Christmas.
So when you are doing your Christmas shopping do you think you could buy an extra gift and make a donation? I and other team clergy are very happy to collect a donation left on your doorstep if you would contact us with an address and a time, or you can drop donations off in the church porch, emptied daily.   

I will be taking the toys to the Berin Centre for distribution 6th December so please get your donation in before then!

Thank you for your generosity and support for this project,
Rev Teresa Stewart-Sykes
