Mums! Barnardo's needs your old toys!
Donate old toys to your local Argos or Barnardo's to help support disadvantaged children this Christmas
It's the fourth year of the Argos toy exchange, where all toys donated go on to be sold in Barnardo's shops to raise vital funds for the charity.
TV presenter and mum of two Louise Redknapp is helping to launch the toy exchange this year and, speaking to Gurgle magazine, shared her own experience of the exchange: "When I told my boys Charley and Beau all about the Argos toy exchange they disappeared upstairs and came down later with all of their old toys packed up, without me even asking them – it's those moments that make me so proud to be a mum. Your children can really surprise you when you're not expecting it."
Over the last three years the exchange has managed to raise over £1.9 million to help Barnardo's.
