Morning all...

I recently launched our annual Big Yellow Christmas Toy Appeal, something which is very close to my heart and an appeal that helps deliver new toys and gifts to local children and family charities in time for Christmas.

Last year we received in excess of £12,000 worth of donations which was simply amazing and looking to go one better this year.

All we ask is that you buy an extra present whilst Christmas shopping and drop it off at either our store on Sealand Road next to B&Q. Or you can drop off at any of the places listed below, including the Swansway Chester Stadium.

If you run a business or are part of a business that can donate too, I'll get your business promoted on social media as a thanks for helping. 100 businesses each donating £100 worth of toys or gifts would raise £10k which would go a long way to beating last year's total.

We'll also be taking the Chester FC players to the Countess of Chester Hospital Children's Ward prior to Christmas to deliver some of your donations.

If you want to just drop off a Gift Card then that would be fine too, the suggestion being Argos as we can get more presents via the 3 for 2 deal there.

Thanks to the Senior Blues for their very kind donation towards the Toy Appeal.

Thanks in advance for everyone else's donations.

Jeff

Just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone that helped contribute towards the amazing amount of donations to the Toy Appeal that we were once again running at Big Yellow this year.

We have received many, many donations and pleased to say we have well over £10k worth of new toys and gifts that have this week been distributed out to several local children's charities, all of whom are extremely appreciative of what they've been given, which of course will be wrapped up and given as presents to under privileged children and families on Christmas Day. We also saw the players this week taking donations to the children's ward at the Countess of Chester Hospital too.

As ever, the fans of Chester FC did themselves proud and on the back of the very kind donation by the Senior Blues, we received more donations to the appeal at the club than we have done so in previous years so thank you again!

This appeal is very close to my heart and if anyone out there has a business or works for a business that would be happy to get involved in next year's appeal, please contact me.

Being involved can mean many things, whether it be just as displaying a poster on a noticeboard, coordinating donations within your company, or actually just spreading the word on social media, it all really helps.

Thank you again and Merry Christmas!

Jeff
