About

Imagine waking up on Christmas morning and finding nothing under the Christmas tree – that’s if there is a tree! Operation Santa is a local campaign which is run by Dudley CVS a local registered charity and has been operating for over 40 years. The idea is simple, we collect donations of toys, gifts and money, to provide some cheer at Christmas for local children and young people who would otherwise get nothing for Christmas, not even a hot meal. We want to make Christmas for children, young people and their families across Dudley borough.

Many of the recipients would otherwise get nothing for Christmas and we channel the donations to local voluntary, community and faith groups who support children and families in crisis. Whatever is collected only goes to children, young people and their families who live within Dudley borough, it does not go out of the area or overseas. At the last count over 15,000 in the borough have been classified as disadvantaged and live below the poverty line, so every year is a challenge!

The 2018 appeal generated almost 13000 new donations 

This year as always we have no funds, so are reliant entirely on donations from the public and big hearted businesses.

We are only accepting NEW items this year please
