The Charities We Support & Why

How Your Support Helps


The 71st Snowball in 2018 was a resounding success in our new home, The Old Swan in Harrogate.  It was a bumper year for toys, boosted by the generous donation from the Catalysts (part of Harrogate Rotary Brigantes).  The NSPCC passed on their heartfelt gratitude to all who supported the Snowball and conveyed how much the toys would mean to all the families they help across their various projects in the region.  We thought you might like to see a copy of their letter and how your generous donations make such a difference



All the generously donated unwrapped toys are distributed by the NSPCC to less fortunate children in the local area at Christmas.

The other charities who have been supported by the Snowball over the more recent years include:​
