Travis Perkins partners with Northampton Saints Foundation for tenth Christmas Toy Collection

Travis Perkins is teaming up with Northampton Saints and the Northampton Saints Foundation for its tenth Christmas Toy Collection.

Donations can be made at the Saints’ match against the Harlequins on November 24 at multiple points at Franklin’s Gardens leading up to the game.

Travis Perkins’ managing director, James MacKenzie, commented: “It’s no doubt that the cost-of-living crisis is having a huge impact on everyone and, for many, Christmas can be a very difficult time. With this community initiative, we hope to brighten the festive season for thousands of young people in care and families in need across Northamptonshire.Travis Perkins christmas toy collection

“So, we’re calling on everyone who is in a position to support, to help make this great community initiative a success and Christmas a little more cheerful for young people and families in need this year.”

There will also be a Travis Perkins truck accepting donations next to the statue in front of the club’s reception, as well as Travis Perkins collection points around the village and cinch stadium.

Since the campaign first launched in 2013, thousands of young people have benefited from the generous support from Travis Perkins’ colleagues and Northampton Saints supporters.

Northampton Saints Rugby Football Club, commercial partnerships director, Ulundi Makhanya added: “We’re delighted to have teamed up with Travis Perkins again for the Big Toy and Hamper Collection, in what has been an amazing ten years of delivering this partnership together.

“This time of year can be particularly challenging for families and young people and that’s why initiatives like these are hugely important. Every year, I’m incredibly grateful for the generosity of all the supporters and the hundreds of people who bring along their donations; we couldn’t do this without you all!”
