Northampton Saints will be partnering with Travis Perkins once for the TP Big Christmas Toy Collection in 2017.
All of the toys will be distributed to young people and children for whom Christmas would just be another day, brightening the festive season for thousands of young people in care and in need across Northamptonshire. We need your help to make this great community initiative a success.
All we need you to do is spend no more than £10 on a new toy or gift and bring it along to the Saints match against Newcastle Falcons on Friday 1 December. There are multiple drop-off points for the Toy Collection, including the ‘Travis Perkins truck’ in the centre of the Match Day Village at Franklin’s Gardens and also another Travis Perkins collection point by the statue as you enter through the main entrance gates.
If you are unable to attend the game you can leave toy donations at the Travis Perkins branches on Kettering Road and Harvey Reeves Road or at our offices at Lodge Way House, Lakeside Divisional Support Centre and the P&H Branch Support Centre, Crick anytime between now and Thursday 30 November. Donations will also be accepted at the main reception at Franklin’s Gardens leading up to the game.
