Employees Toy Appeal Nets 100 Toys


Staff at Syngenta in Huddersfield collected 100 toys for local children in their recent Christmas Toy Appeal.

Each year, staff make donations to the toy appeal in support of local children. This year, toys were distributed through community groups based at the Dalton Library and Information Centre and the Chestnut Centre in Ashbrow. The annual toy appeal is run by the Syngenta Employees Community Gift team who spent some time wrapping presents and labelling them, identifying which toys were suitable for which children. Chairperson of the Fund, Karen Fallows said "It's something we do every year and we make sure the toys are properly labelled and supplied with batteries if they need them. It's important to us that every child opening their present on Christmas Day has a little something which they enjoy. In some cases, it may be the only present that they get."
