Met Christmas Tree 'Give a Gift' Appeal

You may have noticed the tree in the lobby at Archway Station?  

Last year we were really privileged to be invited to take part in Met Christmas Tree 'Give a Gift'  initiative.  The people of Archway were tree-mendously generous and together with other local businesses we were able to give 300 children in need presents that they wouldn't otherwise have received.

The Met Police are running the appeal again this year and it couldn't be simpler!  Just take a tag from the Christmas Tree at Archway station, attach it to a gift - unwrapped but in a gift bag, and drop it into us.  We will then pass it to the Islington Met police to allocated to a child in need.

Gifts should be no more than £20 in value. Below are some ideas for suitable presents:

• For infants: Rattles, chunky colourful toys, shape sorters, plastic or soft toys with nothing that can be pulled off, board books, mobiles, stacking toys, nesting cubes
• For pre-schoolers: Crayons, pens, paper, crafty toys, picture books, dolls, vehicles, musical instruments, push toys, dressing up/role play, pull toys, wooden puzzles
• For school-aged children: Vehicles, footballs, clothes, craft kits, sports equipment, books, board games, puzzles, art supplies and stationery, hats, gloves, scarves, fashion accessories.

We'd really appreciate your gifts by this Friday 4 December.

Thanks very much for your continued support
