Does anyone know of any local shops which are accepting toy donations for local children's charities. Last year I think Superdrug on the Walworth Road was, but it doesn't seem to be doing it this year.

Charterhouse-in-Southwark is an SE1 charity which has a 'Toy Library' and does lots of work with children. Give them a call on 7357-7733.

The Salvation Army did at one time, not sure if they still do.

Salvation Army website says that they are doing it with Superdrug, but local shop isn't accepting them.

Asda is though - but be quick, it ends on Sunday - see

Asda Christmas Toy Appeal - 16th November to 20th December
16 November 2009

There are hundreds of thousands of disadvantage children in our local communities who will not receive a gift this Christmas. In these increasingly hard times let's do all we can to help make the festive seasons special for everyone.

Asda will be running a Christmas Gift Appeal from 16 November to 20 December and will be encouraging customers to donate a gift to their local community in the build up to Christmas. Gift ideas could range from clothing, toys and mobiles for babies and young children, to t shirts, CD's, hats & gloves for teenagers.

This year our Gift Appeal will be supported by a nationwide radio campaign to help build awareness of our campaign and all gifts collected will be distributed in time for Christmas.
