Toy Appeal

The Bucks Radio Toy Appeal

It's back for 2023, as we ask for your help to make Christmas special for disadvantaged children across Bucks.

We're collecting brand new toys, games and gifts for babies to teenagers, boys and girls.  Please don't wrap your donations, as the charities that benefit often have a clear idea of exactly what they need, or see a gift that is just ideal for a young person they know.

You can you donations to any of our official collection points (see the list below), and see some the charities you will be helping.
