Title
Help a child in need smile this Christmas
 
Description

As part of UNISON’s Christmas Charity giving campaign, Edinburgh Napier University’s Unison Branch are inviting staff to donate new toys to be distributed to families and children in need of extra support this Christmas.

 

All toys will be donated to With Kids, a charity based in South West Edinburgh who help vulnerable Children. The charity works directly with Schools and Nurseries in the Broomhouse, Sighthill, Wester Hailes and Stenhouse area and identify children through teachers and support networks who require additional support and assistance.

 

Toys should be new and unwrapped as it gives parents and carers the opportunity to engage directly by wrapping themselves and feel part of Christmas giving.

 

The age range of children is 0-16 Years and it would be great to get a good spread of ages from donations.
