Calling all Dons, we need your help! Our First Team squad will be visiting children at St George’s Hospital and Shooting Star House Children’s Hospice armed with plenty of Wimbledon merchandise. However, to make their Christmas extra special we need toy donations from our wonderful fans.
The AFC Wimbledon Foundation and Paul Strank Charitable Trust will be collecting toy donations for children in need before our home game against Southend United this Saturday. Foundation staff will be on hand next to the Dons Trust Kiosk between 1.00 pm and 2.45 pm to take your kind donations.
You can watch Scott Wagstaff's appeal to all Dons for some much needed toy donations!
St George’s Hospital and Shooting Star House Children’s Hospice have requested the following kind of gifts for boys and girls of mixed ages:
- Baby toys – soft toys, rattles, sound toys and baby books
- Toddler – puzzles, shape sorters and musical instruments,
- School age – playdough, toy cars, dolls, figurine sets, puzzles, arts and crafts-sets
- Older children (up to 19 years old) – board games, headphones, books, computer games, CDs and DVDs
Please note items donated to these two incredible causes must be new and be provided in their original presentation boxes.
Our Foundation team will also be collecting any cash donations that fans can spare to go towards St George's Hospital Charity.
Any surplus donations will be gifted to the wider St George’s Toy Collection that raises money for the hospital’s main charity.
We will also be collection toy donations prior to the Rochdale game on Saturday 8 December.
In addition, Shooting Star House Children’s Hospice have set up an Amazon Wish List, where fans can buy from a list of much-needed items and get them delivered direct to the hospice.
