This December, Snows Toyota Southampton are proud to be supporting AFC Totton’s Annual Christmas Toy Appeal.

As we say goodbye to another challenging year, we want to ensure that every child has a present to open this Christmas and that’s why our Snows Toyota Southampton dealership operated as a drop off centre, collecting toys for children of all ages.

On Wednesday 14th December, we called in our friends Buddy, Jovie and a couple of little helpers to help us spread some Christmas cheer as they delivered our collection of toys to AFC Totton.

How the AFC Totton Appeal Works

Each year, AFC Totton work with local schools and community groups in Hampshire to distribute the collection of toys and Christmas gifts to those who are in the need of them the most. They ask colleagues, supporters and those around them to embrace the Christmas spirit and donate unwrapped gifts to help those who are in less fortunate positions, with the goal in mind that no child will wake up on Christmas day without a present to open.

A club spokesperson said: "Every year, it breaks our hearts that too many children in the local community wake up without a toy or gift on Christmas Day. We work with local schools and community groups to distribute the toys and Christmas gifts to those who need them the most."

Olivia Snow, Customer Experience Manager at Snows Motor Group, said: "Maybe it's because of our name, but we love Christmas at Snows Motor Group! Every year we try to spread a bit of festive cheer, whether that's via the competitions we run or the support we provide to deserving causes and individuals. We'd like to wish all our customers and community partners a very merry Christmas."

We'd like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated. Because of you, this year many children will wake up on Christmas morning with a present to open.
