Happier times – but the toy library is still helping families

Lockdown may have closed the independently-run Charlton Toy Library until December 2, but it is still helping local families. It’s just launched an appeal to raise money to buy food vouchers for families in need – can you help them raise £2,000?

They tell us…

At the end of one of the most challenging years in a long time more families than ever are in need of some Christmas cheer and support. Charlton Toy Library is continuing a long-standing tradition to provide Christmas gifts and food vouchers for vulnerable families.

“This year we are supporting over 40 families in dire straights and have an ambitious target of £2,000 to raise for food vouchers. We are grateful and humbled by all the support from the generous Greenwich borough community we have received in the past and believe that we will do it again this year, together,” says Sharon Jay, outreach worker at the Charlton Toy Library.
