The Salvation Army Christmas Present Appeal

WillowBrook are pleased to announce that this year we will be collecting gifts for the Salvation Army Christmas Present Appeal this November.

The Salvation Army have been running the appeal for many years and millions of children and young people have benefited from gifts donated.


To donate a gift at the Centre, we have a large box in our lobby (closest to the town square), all gifts donated will be passed to Salvation Army at the end of November.

Suggested Gift List for Children and Young People:

  • 0-3 years:  dolls, teddy bears, cot mobiles, baby clothes, bath toys, CDs of suitable music and nursery rhymes, puzzles
  • 3-5: dolls and action figures, cars, lorries, DVDs and CDs (music and nursery rhymes), colouring sets, pencils, crayons, books, puzzles
  • 5-9: educational games & toys, stationery (colouring sets, pencils, crayons, school sets), CDs & family friendly DVDs, books, puzzles, wordsearch, crosswords
  • 9-12: games and toys, stationery, DVDs, books, t-shirts, hair accessories, gloves, scarves, hats
  • 13-16: books, make-up and toiletries (please try to ensure non-allergic ingredients if possible), gloves, scarves, hats, t-shirts, hair accessories and gift vouchers

We believe every child deserves a new gift at Christmas so we are unable to take used or second hand items for the Christmas Present Appeal.

By giving a gift to the Christmas Present Appeal you can make a real difference in someone’s life at Christmas.

Give a gift and light up a life!
