The Christmas Toy Appeal is back with Cheshire’s Silk 106.9 and Barlow Motors Skoda in Crewe and Stoke and it’s needed more than ever before! 

We are looking for your help to buy an extra new and unwrapped toy to be donated to children who may not receive a Christmas present this year, through no fault of their own.


And every year you amaze us and children all over Cheshire Benefit from your generosity.

This year more than ever there are more Children all over Cheshire that without your help will not have a Christmas 

So come on lets do this and together we can make Christmas happen for Children all over Cheshire.
when you go xmas shopping spare a thought for those children that wouldn’t get any gifts through no fault of their own.

All we ask is for a small unwrapped un-used and no food based gifts to avoid allergies so we can distribute them to various children’s charities all over Cheshire.

This year we are doing the toy appeal a little differently due to Covid 19, We would appreciate you taking your toy donations to an approved drop of location directly used by the Charities and if possible not to deliver any toys to our studios this way we can keep travel to a minimum.

Also when you drop off toys at the approved list below please stick to the rules below ....

  • *Wear a mask 
  • * hand sanitize
  • *wipe down toys with an anti- bac wipe before drop off
  • *keep 2 meters distance while shopping and dropping off
  • The Charities will also anti - bac toys and their Covid 19 secure protocol on delivering toys.

*Deadline for donating gifts is 21st December 2020 this is so we can get them to the charities in time for Xmas.

Let’s make the TOY APPEAL 2020 in the COVID 19 year bigger and better than ever Thank you Cheshire
