Donations are needed: Help a child in need within our community this Christmas time!
On Wednesday 2nd of November, Coop Launceston are launching their Christmas Toy appeal.
Donations can be dropped off to any of the three Coop Stores: Broad Street, Newport and Woburn Garage, up until Wednesday the 7th of December.
New, unwrapped toys are welcome as a donation, these will be collected and then passed on to Launceston Food Bank to distribute with their Christmas Food Parcels to local families in need during December.
Coop Member Pioneer for Launceston, Gemma Massey said,
"We have worked closely with Launceston foodbank for several years including a delivery of our 'Bags of Help' donation last Christmas and of course our donation points in each store, but this is the first time we have asked our customers and members for Toys as a donation. We are aware the cost-of-living crisis is affecting everyone; we hope this small appeal will be supported locally and we can help to make a small difference to the children in need in our community this Christmas."
Coop Store manager Jonathon Opie expressed, "We are delighted at Coop Broad street, to be a hub for the collection of gifts to help those in our community celebrate at this time of the year. Myself, and the team are excited to be part of this great scheme helping in the community we work and serve."
Donations can be made, of new, unwrapped toys between Wednesday 2nd of November and Wednesday 7th of December at all three Coop Stores in Launceston and the Coop Funeral Care offices.
