The Travis Perkins Big Christmas Toy Collection is back to brighten the festive seasons of thousands of young people and children in care and in need across Northamptonshire.
The Saints and their main sponsor are partnering up again in 2016, but they need your help to make this great community initiative a success!
They are asking you to spend no more than £10 on a new toy or gift and bring it to our next home match against Newcastle on Friday, November 25th. The collection point will be at the Travis Perkins truck in the Match Day Village behind the Elite Insurance Stand, although donations will also be accepted at the main reception at Franklin’s Gardens and Saints Shop during the week leading up to the day of the game, along with the town’s branches of Travis Perkins on Kettering Road and Harvey Reeves Road and the Travis Perkins head office.
This is the fourth year that the Saints have partnered with Travis Perkins at this time of year, and all of the toys will be distributed to young people and children for whom Christmas would be just another day.
Tickets remain available for Saints v Falcons at www.tinyurl.com/SAI-FAL-1617 and by using Print@Home supporters can save themselves the admin fees and beat match day queues! ALSO TUNE IN TO MARK AND LIZ for your chance to win tickets!
