The Entertainer partners with Christian Aid to raise money for Afghanistan Appeal

Toy retailer The Entertainer has teamed up with Christian Aid to support its Afghanistan Appeal. Over the next few weeks, The Entertainer hopes to raise thousands of pounds for the charity, while also encouraging families across the UK to learn more about the current landscape in Afghanistan.

The Entertainer’s Founder and Executive Chairman Gary Grant has already made a donation of £25,000 to the appeal through The Grant Foundation and is calling on customers of The Entertainer to join in the campaign.

The Entertainer will invite families to pick up colouring sheets from their local store or download them. The sheets include child-friendly information about the ongoing efforts in Afghanistan to support displaced families.

For every colouring sheet submitted in store or on The Entertainer’s Facebook page using the hashtag #TheEntertainerAppeal, The Entertainer will donate £1 to Christian Aid to support their appeal for Afghans.

All donations will help provide families across Afghanistan with emergency food, shelter and blankets.

The appeal will run from 6–23 January, and the colouring-in sheets can be picked up in store or downloaded online at

More than 12,000 toys donated to The Entertainer’s Big Toy Appeal
