Christmas Gift Appeal 2022

Help make Christmas special for children and young people across the borough.

We are asking St Helens' kind-hearted residents, businesses and organisations to come together to help us plan to make Christmas 2022 extra special for some of the borough's most disadvantaged children and young people. 

Councillor Nova Charlton, St Helens Borough Council's Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: "The generosity of residents, businesses, and community organisations here in St Helens never ceases to amaze me.

"We are now in the midst of a cost-of-living crisis which is affecting everyone. However, I'm once again asking that we come together this Christmas and make it a special one for all children. I know times are hard for a lot of us right now, but I would urge those in a position to make a small donation to do so, as it certainly can go a long way in making someone's Christmas a happy one."

All donations will go to children and young people aged 0-21 to help struggling families and care leavers have a Christmas to remember.

Donations could include new toys, books, clothing, gift vouchers, confectionery or toiletry gift sets, and can be dropped off at any of the locations below. 

We are unable to take cash donations at the drop-off points, but we would welcome cash donations online:
