The Toy Appeal: Give a child a Christmas

This #FashionFriday, we’ve got something a little different. Rather than showing you the latest in men’s fashion, we’ve got a small request on behalf of The Toy Appeal.

The Toy Appeal is a registered charity, #1179080, operated by Dee and Chris Drake each year, which provides a sack of toys at Christmas to children living in poverty. The Appeal has been running since 2013.


John Douglas Menswear is proud to be an official drop off point for this fantastic charity: that provides toys to under privileged children in the Manchester and Cheshire area. They operate via referrals from social workers, schools and support centres and help all children regardless of race, gender or religion. To find out more about The Toy Appeal, visit their website at

With the race to Christmas in full swing: there’s decorations to hang and last minute present shopping to be done. During one of the busiest times of the year, it can be easy to forget how lucky we are to be able to buy gifts for our friends and families. Through generous donations from the public, The Toy Appeal are able to give presents and stocking fillers to children who would otherwise be left out.

If you are able to, please donate a spare gift to The Toy Appeal via our showroom. Gifts should be unwrapped and in good condition (pick up a leaflet or see their website for more information) and the charity collects for children aged 0-17 years old.

That’s it for this week’s #FashionFriday. We’ll be back with the best in menswear next week, with our John Douglas Menswear ‘Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide’ coming soon! To donate toys whilst ticking off some of your Xmas shopping list, visit our showroom on Chestergate, Macclesfield.

From The Toy Appeal, the children who receive your gifts and from us, a huge thank you in advance. See you soon!
