This year the present appeal is back, bigger and better with more places to donate your presents, and with the aim to support more people this Christmas with a present.
This years appeal is in association with Commsave
We're asking the people and businesses of Northampton to donate presents to families and older people in need this Christmas so everyone can have a Christmas present this year.
You can drop off presents at the locations below (No food or used toys), we are working with community partners to distribute the presents across the town to those in need.
We're running this from the beginning of November until the beginning of December to allow us time to give the presents to our community partners so they can distribute them
Also if you're a business that would like your own donation box then please email [email protected] and someone from our team will be in touch!
