Northampton Saints will partner Travis Perkins for the ‘TP Big Xmas Toy Collection’ during the Club’s Gallagher Premiership match against Leicester Tigers later this month.
With the aim of brightening the festive season for thousands of young people in care and in need across Northamptonshire, Saints and Travis Perkins are calling on all supporters to make this great community initiative a success.
Toys will be donated at Saints’ East Midlands Derby clash against Tigers on Saturday 30th November (kick-off 3pm), and then distributed to young people and children for whom Christmas would just be another day.
Saints supporters can get involved by…
- Spending no more than £10 on a new toy or gift (see the list below for a list of ideas)
- Bringing it along to the Northampton Saints match against Leicester Tigers on Sunday 30th November
- Donating the gift at one of multiple drop-off points for the Toy Collection – including the ‘Travis Perkins truck’ in the centre of the Supporter Village at Franklin’s Gardens, and also another Travis Perkins collection point by the statue as you enter through the main gates.
- If you are unable to attend the game, you can leave toy donations at the Travis Perkins branches on Harvey Reeves Road or at their offices at Lodge Way House, Lakeside Divisional Support Centre and the P&H Branch Support Centre, Crick anytime between now and Friday 29 November.
- Donations will also be accepted at the main reception at Franklin’s Gardens leading up to the game.
Thank you for your continued support and for changing the lives of young people and children at Christmas!
