Donate your toys for Barnardo's
HELP raise a bumper £1million for Barnardo's to support some of the UK's most disadvantaged children.
This year's Argos Toy Exchange is encouraging people to donate pre-loved toys at their local Argos and Barnardo's stores.
As a thank-you, donors will receive a £5 voucher towards the cost of new toys (minimum £35 spend) to be redeemed at Argos by December 24.
In mid-Somerset, people can use Argos store at Townsend Shopping Park in Shepton Mallet.
Otherwise people can take their donations to the Barnardo's store in the High Street in Wells.
Gerard Cousins, Barnardo's Director of Retail and Trading, said: "After the success of last year's Toy Exchange, we are really excited about the potential that this year's campaign holds and are delighted to be partnering with Argos again.
"The initiative works well for us but its beauty lies in the fact that the concept is so simple.
"All customers have to do to help the most disadvantaged children in society is donate their pre-loved toys."
Amy Whidburn, Head of Corporate Responsibility for Argos, said: "Last year's Toy Exchange raised hundreds of thousands of pounds. We are looking to build on this success by setting an even higher fundraising target of £1million this year.
"We know the important role toys play in a child's life, especially at this time of year. By supporting the Toy Exchange, customers will be making a difference to the lives of the most vulnerable children across the UK."
Toy donations will be accepted until Tuesday November 26, when they will be passed on to Barnardo's shops where they will be resold to raise funds for the charity.
Barnardo's stores will also accept toys on behalf of Argos and give £5 vouchers to those who donate.
