Support us at Christmas
The festive season is upon us. There is so much to celebrate, but this time of year can be a particularly challenging time for some. There are lots of ways to show your support to the individuals and families in our service.
We provide Christmas gifts for the children and young people who are staying in our emergency accommodation and who we support in the local community who are having a particularly tough time.
Buy a Gift
We need gifts for children and young people of all ages. New and unwrapped gifts only please. Good gift ideas are toys, games, puzzles, books and arts & crafts.
Gift Drop Offs
If you would like to provide a Christmas present for a child in our service, we would be so grateful. We can accept gifts anytime but ideally by 12th December so there's time to deliver them during the school term.
There are currently two gift drop off points:
The toy bank is now in place in Glossop Lidl. The box is located next to our food donation basket by the tills.
Order a Gift
We have put together a wish list on Amazon, which focusses on gifts for teenagers and older children as we tend to struggle each year to find gifts for that age group.
Here's the link:
The items on this list are just a guide. If you'd rather purchase items elsewhere, support local businesses or find the same/similar items at a cheaper price, please do so and use one of the gift drop off points or get in touch to make other arrangements.
If you are shopping on Amazon, we are registered with Smile. Purchases made through smile.amazon.co.uk make a donation to our charity on your behalf.
Make a Donation
To make a one off donation or to set up a regular payment, please follow the donate button at the top of the page.
If you would prefer to pay by another method, please get in touch. We can provide our bank details for a direct transfer or we can accept donations by cash or cheque (made out to 'Crossroads Derbyshire').
