Big Christmas Toy & Hamper Collection


We once again partner with the Northampton Saints for our ‘Big Christmas Toy & Hamper Collection’ during the Club’s premiership match against Harlequins on the evening of Friday 24 November 2023.


How can you help?

Spend no more than £10 on a new toy or gift - see the list below for loads of ideas. Or pick five items from the hamper list and put them in a Christmas bag.

Bring your toy, gift or hamper goodies along to the Northampton Saints match against Harlequins on Friday 24 November (kick off is at 7.45pm) and drop them off at one of multiple points at the Cinch stadium at Franklin’s Gardens listed below:


  • The Travis Perkins truck next to the statue as you enter through the main gates
  • At various Travis Perkins collections points around the village and stadium


Unable to attend the game? You can still support!

If you're unable to make the game you can pop along to one of the venues below anytime between now and Friday 24 November 2023:


  • The Travis Perkins branch on Harvey Reeves Road, Northampton 
  • Or drop them off at the main reception or shop in the Cinch stadium at Franklin's Gardens


We’re kindly asking all Saints' supporters to donate toys or food items at the match; we’ll then organise for the toys and hamper foods to be distributed to young people, children and families in the area, for whom Christmas would just be another day in what has already been a very difficult year.

The cost of living crisis is having a huge impact on everyone and, for many, Christmas will only serve to compound a very difficult time. By working together with our local community, we hope to brighten the festive season for thousands of young people in care and families in need across Northamptonshire. So we're calling on everyone who's in a position to support and help make this years' collection another huge success.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support and for helping to change the lives of young people and children at Christmas. Below are some ideas of the gift items you can donate.
