Helping Children in West Lothian

Helping Children in West Lothian


One of our Trustees (we will call him Stuart) told the story of his neighbour who always brought a little something to Stuart, for his children at Christmas.

After a few years, the neighbour took in foster children. Christmas came around and Stuart took presents for the foster children. Stuart was amazed to be greeted by a 7 year old who asked Stuart why he was being given a present.

Stuart explained that it was from Santa and the child replied, with tears in his eyes, that he had never been good enough to receive a gift from Santa before!


The West Lothian Toy Appeal - through River Kids - delivers the magic of Christmas to children in need, with the joy of a toy at Christmas.

The difference it makes is priceless and for just £10 spent on each child, we can bring the magic of Christmas to every West Lothian child in need.
