From now until 25th November, you can donate pre-loved toys to your local Argos or Barnardo's in return for a £5 voucher towards the cost of new toys (minimum spend £35, to be redeemed in Argos until Christmas Eve).
The money raised will be used to support the children’s charity's vital causes such as early years development or vocational skills training. Previous years' toy exchanges have raised £1.25m.
According to research by Argos and Barnardo’s, 92% of children would give away their own presents if it meant another child would have a happier Christmas.
Tess Daly says she’s excited to be a part of the Toy Exchange: “It’s an incredibly worthwhile cause and one which can help make Christmas that little bit more special for disadvantaged families across the UK."
“We want to bring the grand total from the three Toy Exchanges to £2 million, so with over 1,150 Argos and Barnardo’s stores throughout the country, it’s so simple to just pop down to your local branch and get donating,” Tess adds.
