Welcome to the home of Chiltern Toy Bank

Christmas 2023

Registration for support is now closed and we are not taking any more donations for 2023.

We’ve been overwhelmed by the huge generosity of our local community and support organisations this year with their donations and this has helped us support over 500 children in the Buckinghamshire area.
Our Elves are now taking a well deserved rest and although our doors are closed, we would encourage anyone looking for support now, or at any time in the future, to contact their local Citizens Advice Bureau who are available all year round.
If you would like to sign up to hear more from us in 2024, please fill out the form below. Otherwise we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy start to 2024!

About Us

Chiltern Toy Bank has been working in the Chesham and Amersham area for over 8 years. We collect unwanted toys, or generously donated new toys and redistribute them to families who need extra support at Christmas time. The incredible donations we receive from local organisations and individuals help families make Christmas a little more special for their children.

As a Charity we rely heavily on volunteers who give up their time around Christmas to become our Toy Bank Elves, helping collect, clean, sort, pick, pack and deliver gifts to families in time for Christmas.

We are supported by other incredible organisations and receive some funding through local and Government schemes. This allows us to run our warehouse, buy those extra touches for stocking fillers and provide families with wrapping paper, sellotape and batteries, so Christmas is no longer a stressful day, but a time to enjoy!

If you’re a parent or guardian who may need our support this year, registrations will open on 31st October 2023.

If you would like to donate toys to Chiltern Toy Bank, we will be opening our collection points in November this year.

You can make a monetary donation to us by using the ‘Donate through our PayPal Giving Fund’

If you would like any more information about volunteering with Chiltern Toy Bank, or are an organisation interested in working with us in future years, we’d love to hear from you!
