Special request for toys and games for older children in Cumbernauld

Volunteers at Cumbernauld Resilience group are appealing for donations of new and unwrapped toys or board games to help them deliver a Christmas for local families to remember.

As we have reported, the group is delivering Christmas and New Year hampers to hundreds of local residents that have been affected by Covid-19 restrictions or are struggling financially this festive season.

Their tireless preparations are well underway but the group has a special request for our readers who might be able to help - in a quest to boost the special selection of gifts being handed out across town with the hampers.

It is stressed that there is a currently a shortage of toys for younger children or activities for older children, such as board games and that volunteers are facing a race against time to make up the shortfall .

The group’s Bobby Caw said: “As ever the kindness from the local community has been phenomenal.

“Our amazing team of volunteers has been busy organising the presents and beginning to plan the hampers but we have a shortage of toys and games.

If you’re in a position to make a donation, please consider doing so, it really will make a difference. “
