Good deed group The Kindness Offensive is seeking help for its annual Christmas toy charity giveaway.

The collective - which has handed out more than 35 tonnes of presents and half a million pancakes - usually gives 4,000 London orphans Christmas presents.

In 2011, Barclays sponsored The Kindness Offensive's annual toy drive. The group deliver presents each year using a bright double decker ‘Kinder Bus’ given to them by clothing store White Stuff.

But this year, the group doesn't have a sponsor to help them get presents out to all those children. 

"We're unique in that we don't accept donations from the public," The Kindness Offensive founder told Ham&High.

“This is purely for the people at no expense to them because it’s fun. We reckon corporations who operate on the High Street and operate in our lives should be getting involved and doing something worthy for the community.”

He added: “What we’re looking for is a local business who’s not doing anything for Christmas – or maybe even a lottery winner.

“What we need is a Christmas miracle.”

You can get in touch with The Kindness Offensive by emailing contact@thekindnessoffensive.com.
