Toy Service Thanks

Home » News » Toy Service Thanks
AMC Toys2018

At our Toy and Gift Service on the first Sunday in Advent, Pauline Noble, who co-ordinates AMC's fund-raising for Action for Children, said, "First of all THANK YOU. We may worry you won't remember to bring a toy or gift for another child or young person, but you have never let us down. So this is a real thank you on behalf of not only the children that will receive them but also the parents or carers and of course the Family Workers who will select and wrap the presents. All the toys will be taken tomorrow to the Action for Children Family Centre on Berryfields, for both there and other smaller centres in surrounding areas, and then all the toys will be individually selected with a child in mind and either wrapped by the Centre or given to a parent or carer to wrap and give on Christmas Day.

Not only are we thanking you all for bringing toys and gifts, but both here and in my home I have several bags of beautifully knitted items — garments for tiny babies, but also hats and mittens which are so important plus blankets for cots, pushchairs or prams which are in great demand, so thank you to all the ladies who spend many hours knitting."
