Chiltern Toy Bank

Welcome to the Chiltern Toy Bank Website

Chiltern Toy Bank has opened its doors again for Christmas 2021. With the generous support from the people of the Chiltern area, we’re ready to support those parents and guardians who might need a little bit of help to make Christmas special for their children this year.

We welcome back those families who have used us before, and say ‘hello and come on in’ to families who are using our services for the first time. 

Parents and guardians can register from 1st – 21st November 2021.

We will be gratefully receiving donations at our collection points from 1st – 14th November 2021.

Covid-19 and Chiltern Toy Bank

Chiltern Toy Bank takes the impact of COVID-19 very seriously and follows Government guidance at all times. We have put together a detailed risk assessment to protect both our volunteers (the Toy Bank Elves) and those who are receiving gifts.


The key points are:

  • Volunteers will have access to hand washing stations and hand sanitiser whilst working in our warehouse
  • The warehouse allows for social distancing
  • All donations will be thoroughly checked by the Toy Bank Elves. Nearly new and pre-loved gifts will be cleaned, and a lot of the soft toys and dressing up clothes will be washed
  • The Toy Bank Elves will be mindful of COVID-19 guidelines when delivering gifts
  • Chiltern Toy Bank will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and are prepared to react to changes of Government advice for the safety of all those involved. We will post updates to our social media channels, this website, and directly to those who have registered and are volunteering for us


Please get donations to one of our Donation Points by Wednesday 4th November 2020. With the latest announcement about the second lockdown we don't yet know how our activities will be impacted.
