JPG employees support Barnardos

After the success of last years support to Barnardos with our Secret Santa donations, the JPG team decided to dig deep again this year. You guessed it, the team decided they wanted to donate again to Barnardos and give a gift to make a Child’s Christmas special.


Every Christmas Barnardos needs gifts for children of all ages, from babies through to teenagers. You to can help make a Child’s Christmas this year by donating to the Barnardos Christmas Toy Appeal. Ashley Ogden and Caroline Dixon from JPG went along to hand over the gifts this week.

For the seventh year, GLS ParcelShops are supporting the Barnardos Toy Appeal. Drop your gift off at any of 180 GLS ParcelShops nationwide by Friday 16 December and it will be delivered to Barnardos in time for Christmas. We have a handy list of all GLS locations nationwide.


What kind of gift should I get?

Barnardos works with children of all ages, from infants up to teenagers. Some suggestions if you need help in choosing your gift:

  • Infants and toddlers: Activity toys, pre-school toys
  • 3-6 years: Soft toys, action toys, character toys such as Peppa Pig and SpongeBob SquarePants
  • 7-9 years: Board games, dressing up outfits, books, cars
  • 10-15 years: Books, jewellery, games, music, toiletries, clothes vouchers

We ask that all gifts for the Barnardos Toy Appeal are new and worth about £10, to ensure that all children get something of equal quality.2015-toyappeal-photo-500

If you can’t make it to a drop-off point by the 16th, or would prefer to give a gift of a donation, you can give an online gift quickly and easily with our secure donation form.






Wising you all a Merry Christmas from the team at JPG.
