With just under a month to go until Christmas Day, Leightons Totton is once again collecting toy and gift donations for the amazing Mission Christmas Campaign.

Mission Christmas is an initiative set up by Cash for Kids, a grant-giving charity whose mission is to improve the lives of children and young people affected by poverty, illness or neglect. The Mission Christmas campaign is running in partnership with a number of local radio stations up and down the country, to help get Christmas presents underneath the Christmas trees of the most disadvantaged children in the UK. In past years, through the generosity of local communities, the charity has been able to supply presents to over 32,000 children up and down the country.

As an official drop-off point, Leightons Totton will be accepting donations throughout December, and will be collecting a whole range of toys and gifts for many different age groups. Some of our suggestions are below:
