Another Successful Christmas Magic Appeal Delivered in 2023

Dalton Together would like to reach out to our community and partners to thank everyone who has supported our Christmas Magic Appeal again for 2023. “Together we make good things happen”.

With the help of Sue Carter and Moldgreen URC who co-ordinated this huge operation and the financial support from the Dalton Ward Cllrs and Syngenta (Syngenta staff also donated lots of fabulous toys to our appeal), plus the generosity of local residents who kindly donated additional items for families within our community, we have managed to deliver another successful Christmas appeal which has made a huge difference to households across the Dalton Ward.

How many households did we help?

Our Christmas Magic Appeal 2023 helped:

  • Over 362 residents (112 referrals)
  • 138 Adults (85 female, 53 male).
  • 224 Children (125 girls, 99 boys).

What did our goodies bags contain for families?

New toys, books, family games, toiletries, chocolates – presents for all members of the family.

Volunteers involved in the Magic Appeal?

We had great support from our community, this included 20+ volunteers who helped to bring everything together. Overall our volunteer’s:

  • Collected donations from organisations/partners and residents.
  • Shopped for key items for the appeal.
  • Wrapped presents.
  • Helped setting up on the day.
  • Packed and gave out the goodie bags to families arriving on the day for collection.
