The Great Bolton Gift Appeal 2017

The Great Bolton Gift Appeal 2017

Bolton at Home and a number of partners have teamed up for The Great Bolton Gift Appeal, which helps ensure those children/teens that may otherwise not receive a gift this Christmas are not left empty-handed this festive season. We’re asking generous Christmas shoppers to help by donating to the appeal using one of our multiple collection bins dotted around Bolton (see a list of drop-off locations below).

For many years,  we’ve ran and supported various gift appeals to help ensure every child in Bolton gets a gift on December 25th, however, its you- the kind people of Bolton, who make these appeals a success each year. This year, we’re asking shoppers to donate a variety of gifts for both younger children and teenagers so we’re able to help as many young people as possible; contributors are welcomed to donate both new and used items (provided these are in good condition) at any of our multiple collection points dotted around Bolton.

Where can I donate to the appeal?
