Barnardo’s near Watford launches appeal for toys

November 28, 2017 by  

People living near Watford have been urged to donate toys to a Bushey-based branch of children’s charity, Barnardo’s.

The move is timed to get toys into the community when demand will be high. The third sector can use poster printing from Watford to make their campaigns effective. Barnardo’s area business head, Naj Khimji, told the Watford Observer:

“We sell a lot of toys and games at this time of the year and are really grateful for the generous donations from local people. It’s amazing what people unearth when they start looking in the back of cupboard and at the bottom of the toy box – it’s a good excuse to have a clear out at home.”

The manager thanked donors and consumers for the support they have provided in the past. Barnardo’s does not just want new toys. It is clear that pre-loved items of a decent quality are appropriate donations. Furthermore, Barnardo’s is not just after toys to fill its shelves. Accessories, clothing and unused toiletries are always welcome.

Over the last year, more than 270,000 people across the UK received practical assistance from the charity. These individuals included carers, parents, teenagers and children.

If the public hand their toys into the Barnardo’s retail outlet on the High Road of Bushey, they can have confidence in where the profits will go to. The beneficiaries of the generosity will be vulnerable children throughout the whole of Hertfordshire.
