Help support struggling families across Manchester and Salford by gifting something special for them to open on Christmas Day

Wood Street Mission Christmas Appeal

Wood Street Mission is appealing for donations of new toys and gifts including toiletries and books, unwrapped for ages 0-14 years old. You can view the Wood Street Mission Christmas wish list for further suggestions. Financial donations are also welcome through the Wood Street Mission website.

The closing date for the collection of donations by their van driver will be Wednesday, 8 December.

You can donate items at Central Stores, Sackville Street Building (North Campus) or the Central Post Room, John Owens Building (South Campus).

The closing date for donations is Wednesday, 8 December.

About the Wood Street Mission Christmas Appeal 

Wood Street Mission helps support families living on a low income in Manchester and Salford, with practical help and services. Christmas is an expensive time of year for all families but for the families that Wood Street Mission support, it can be a time of worry and stress to not be able to provide presents for their children to open on Christmas Day.

The Wood Street Mission thanks you for your support and sends best wishes for the festive season and New Year.
