Christmas Toy Appeal
With the Festive season fast approaching and the present buying underway it is very easy for us all to get carried away. At Trident Marketing we have heard a few stories recently which have made us stop and think about those local families that are less fortunate than ourselves.
We wanted to do something to actively get involved and try to bring some happiness to those who may need it. We have decided to support a locally based charity in Ipswich called FIND – Families In Need with their Christmas appeal. For nearly 30 years the charity has offered a lifeline to people in Ipswich and surrounding areas who are in poverty and despair. The charity provides food parcels and personal care items to help people through a crisis, as well as furniture, bedding and other items where the person or family has nothing.
2018 has been a desperate year for hundreds of local people and so far FIND has helped over 2000 people. This year, Trident Marketing are running our own ‘Toy Appeal’ in aid of FIND. Any toys that we collect/purchase will be donated directly to FIND and will be wrapped and personally named for a child who will receive it within their family Christmas Hamper.
We appreciate that Christmas is an expensive time of year, but if you feel you might be able to buy a new children’s gift, it would be greatly appreciated. We will even come and collect it from you! If you are not able to purchase a gift but would like to send a small monetary donation, the Trident staff will ensure that each and every penny is used to purchase toys on your behalf.
Toys can be brought for any age or gender as long as they are new items.
The Trident Staff normally do a Secret Santa, but this year have decided that we will all purchase toys to add to the appeal.
If you would like to support our cause then please email Victoria@tridentmarketinguk.com and let us known whether you will be supplying a toy or would like to contribute to the gift money pot. We have a charity account so that no money is lost in admin fees.
The thought of a Child not receiving a gift at Christmas breaks our heart and it is our mission to put a smile on as many children’s faces as possible!
