Manchester care home Colleagues host community toy appealColleagues at HC-One’s Guide Lane care home in Audenshaw, Manchester, hosted this year’s annual community toy appeal, where the local community come together to support people who need it.

The local community around Guide Lane hold a Christmas event every year, whereby they distribute toys to children of all ages and to families that are struggling at this time of year.

This process can only take place with the help of local people giving donations, so Colleagues recommended hosting it at the home, which already has good links with the community. Tracey, a member of the housekeeping team at Guide Lane has taken charge of the toy appeal this year for the local children.

Colleagues at Guide Lane have been donating gifts over the past few months and they have also collected a massive selection of gifts to give to the toy appeal.

Guide Lane Home Manager, Julie Richardson said: “I am extremely proud of our team, the outcome of this appeal has been brilliant.
