Travis Perkins And Northampton Saints Partner For Christmas Toy Collection

Toy Collection

Over the weekend, Travis Perkins, the UK's leading distributor of building materials, teamed up with Northampton Saints and the Northampton Saints Foundation to share donations from the club’s supporters and Travis Perkins’ colleagues and customers to support families in need, and young people in care this Christmas.

The ninth Travis Perkins and Northampton Saints Big Christmas and Toy and Hamper Collection will see supporters, customers and colleagues spend up to £10 on a new toy or gift, or hamper product and put them in a festive Christmas bag.

Donations can be made at the Saints’ match against the Barbarians on Saturday 26th November, with supporters able to drop them off at one of multiple points around Cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens. There will also be a Travis Perkins truck accepting donations next to the statue in front of the club’s receptions. Travis Perkins customers can also drop off toys and items in advance of the game at the Harvey Reeves Road branch and at the Northampton Saints reception or shop, ahead of the fixture.

Since the campaign first launched in 2013, thousands of young people have benefited from the generous support from Travis Perkins’ colleagues and Northampton Saints supporters. The rugby club and builders merchant estimate the campaign has made thousands of donations since the initiative began. 

Travis Perkins Managing Director Kieran Griffin said: 

“We have a long tradition of supporting the Big Toy and Hamper Collection, which always has such a positive impact in the Northampton area, and as a major local employer, we are proud to continue supporting this initiative at the heart of our communities at such a crucial and poignant time. Our colleagues, customers and Saints supporters are all incredibly generous and the toys, gifts and food items will go a long way to making Christmas a little bit more cheerful for young people and families this year.”

Northampton Saints Rugby Football Club, Head of Commercial Partnerships, Ulundi Makhanya commented on the partnership:

“We’re delighted to have teamed up with Travis Perkins again for the Big Toy and Hamper Collection, in what is the ninth year of delivering the initiative together. These are still challenging times for many families and young people, especially at this time of year, so initiatives such as this are hugely important. We’re incredibly grateful for the generosity we receive year-on-year from our supporters and to the hundreds of people who bring along their donations. Here’s hoping for another successful year!”
