Barclays in Bexley High Street is the latest business to get on board with our toy appeal which will change Christmas for seriously ill children.
The bank will act as a drop-off point for readers to donate new toys and unwanted gifts to help chYps, the children and young people’s service of EllenorLions Hospices.
Some of the toys will in turn make their way to children in Bexley and Kent who benefit from the charity’s services.
Others will be sold in the 14 EllenorLions Hospices charity shops, such as the one in Bexley High Street.
Sue Fox, Barclays manager in Bexley, said: “The chYps appeal touches most people.”
The bank is holding a community Christmas party today (Thursday) at which EllenorLions staff will run a pop-up shop. Donations can be made via these businesses: Barclays, 14 High Street, Bexley; Erith Flooring, 2 Mill Road, Northumberland Heath, Erith; Kitchen Concepts, 116 Blackfen Road, Sidcup; Paynes Menswear, 104 Station Road, Sidcup; We Love Cakes, 46 Bexley High Street, Bexley.
