Welcome to the home of Chiltern Toy Bank
Thank you for a fantastic Christmas 2021
Chiltern Toy Bank has closed its doors after a fantastically successful Christmas 2021. With the generous support from the people of the Chilterns area, we were able to support over 200 families who needed help to make Christmas extra special for their children this year.
Our Toy Bank Elves are taking a well-deserved break, so we may be a little slower to get back to you if you would like to chat to us. We’ll be updating our website in Autumn 2022 and you may see us at a few events over the Summer in the Chesham/Amersham area.
In the meantime, we wish everyone a safe, healthy and fantastic 2022 and look forward to seeing you soon!
The Toy Bank Elves
Chiltern Toy Bank has been working in the Chesham and Amersham area for over 7 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 in November 2022.
If you would like to donate toys to Chiltern Toy Bank, we will be opening our collection points in October/November this year.
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!
