Here’s how you can help
Joining in our appeal couldn’t be easier.
We have a number of donation points which all feature special posters.
Make donations in the boxes at Morrisons, Dumfries; Boots, High Street; Tesco, Cuckoo Bridge; Tesco, Peel Centre; Nationwide Building Society, Church Crescent; and The Crichton Trust, Bankend Road.
Some stores have Christmas trees bearing tags with the names and ages of children who will need a gift. Pick a tag and add it to an appropriate gift, then leave it at the tree.
These stores are: Marks and Spencer, (coffee shop); Argos, Church Street, Dumfries; ThomasTosh, Thornhill. There is also a tagged tree at Grierson House, on the Crichton Campus, for the university.
Alternatively, hand in toys or selection boxes/ sweets, gift tokens (marked with the amount) or cash to the Standard offices in Park Lane, beside Buccleuch Street Bridge.
Post cheques (marked Toy Appeal) to: Toy Appeal, Dumfries Standard, Park Lane, Dumfries, DG1 2AX, or donate to our account at Bank of Scotland, Dumfries.
