Bucks Advent Calendar: Sunday 10 December – Making a difference


Date: 10th Dec 2017

On Friday boxes of toys made their way to Chiltern Toy Bank thanks to generous staff at Bucks New University.

University Communications organised the collection of good quality, undamaged and complete toys so that children less fortunate can have something to look forward to on Christmas morning.Louise Harvey with toys for charity

Chiltern Toy Bank, based in Chesham, helps families in need every Christmas.

The staff in Marketing and Student Recruitment are also collecting items for its One Can Trust Reverse Advent calendar – where you put an item in every day to donate.

University Corporate Communications Manager Louise Harvey (pictured) said: “Both of these ideas are really simple and a great way to help others who need a little help at Christmas.

“Most of us are lucky enough to have never had to worry about giving our children presents or feeding ourselves and our families, but by adding a few extra things to our shopping lists or donating gifts we can help those that do.”

One Can Trust, based in Duke Street, High Wycombe will be given the food and toiletries haul on December 22.
