One little boy’s Christmas has been cancelled, can you help

Yesterday on my way to work I listened to a heart breaking story on BBC Oxford. A grandmother had emailed the show asking for a Christmas miracle for her daughter and grandson Noah, who is just six years old.

This Christmas they are being evicted from their home by an unscrupulous landlord who has decided that he wants the property back to renovate. They already live with no heating in the downstairs but at least they had a roof over their head. BBC Oxford are trying desperately to find somewhere for them to go.

Noah’s mum hasn’t been very well and with the huge stress and pressure of the housing situation, Christmas is effectively cancelled for this family.

I talked to the show and the grandmother on air this morning and promised to do everything I can to help them.

Whilst I can’t help with a home for them, I can play Santa a little bit.
So I’m making this festive plea to all of my toy contacts across the industry to help this little boy and his mum enjoy a little bit of magic this Christmas. Let’s prove that there is lots of festive spirit around and do something for someone who doesn’t have what many of us take for granted. Our children will be surrounded by toys this year and Noah should be too.

We’ve already had generous donations from Spin Master, Scienceshop.com
and Topps.
Can you help too?

Please email me, catherine@publicityoxford.com if you can.

Merry Christmas everyone.
