Launching 2019’s Christmas Toy Appeal

The 4Com Foundation has once again partnered with Amelia’s Rainbow for their Christmas Toy Appeal.

Each year, the toy appeal helps make a difference to families across the local Dorset area by delivering tailor-made Santa sacks of presents to children living with terminal, life-limiting, serious or chronic illnesses, and their siblings.

Additionally, the charity will be delivering presents to the children’s ward at Poole Hospital on Christmas Day and Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust on Boxing Day. 

We are asking you to help by donating brand new, unwrapped presents suitable for ages between 0 – 21 years old. Gifts for babies, toddlers and teenagers are always in short supply, so any donations suitable for these age groups would be greatly appreciated!

Where possible, please avoid the following: used toys, cuddly toys (infection risk), and toys with small pieces.

Toys can be dropped into Reception at our head office in Bournemouth any time between 9:00am to 5:30pm, Monday to Friday. Our address is:

One Lansdowne Plaza, 24 Christchurch Road, Bournemouth, BH1 3NE.
