Community Secret Santa returns!

You can now nominate a friend or neighbour who needs a little help this Christmas.

by admin

If you know a family or an individual in Newton-le-Willows who may find Christmas difficult, you can now nominate them for a Secret Santa gift to make their festive season a little easier.

Newton and Earlestown Community Group have launched their Community Secret Santa appeal for 2021 – and the idea is to support those people in need, but who might not normally ask for help.

This is the second year this project has been running – last year, 75 Christmas food hampers were distributed and more than 1,400 presents delivered to local children. Now organisers hope to make 2021 even bigger and better – but your help is needed.

Can you donate a gift and make someone’s Christmas?

To make this extraordinary act of community kindness work, gifts and other donations are now needed.

If you can give a toy, gift, or food item to help make up hampers for those in need across our town, your generosity would be most appreciated.

You can drop off new, unwrapped gifts and toys suitable for ages 0-16, or non-perishable Christmas food items to any of the following collection points before Friday, 3 December.

Here’s how to nominate someone for a gift or hamper

You can nominate a neighbour, friend, or anyone in the community that you think needs and deserves  little kindness this Christmas.

Then, before the big day, they will receive gifts of Christmas food hampers  and/or toys to make their festive celebrations a little brighter.

If you would like to put forward somebody to receive a Secret Santa gift or hamper, simply email christmas@newtoncommunitycentre.co.uk to request a nomination form.

Make sure you have your nomination form completed and returned before the deadline, which is Monday,  6 December.

Please note, every effort will be made to give something to all nominees – however, this is dependent on the number of donations received. If your nominee is to receive a gift, you will be notified by email.

A big thank you to everyone who is supporting this year’s Community Secret Santa in Newton-le-Willows!

They include Newton and Earlestown Community Group; Newton Community Centre; Newton Deli; Wilko Earlestown; Amazon; Newton-le-Willows Rotary Club and the Victoria Pub.
