Gift of giving: charity secret santa appeal boxes are back

Published on: 21/11/2019

The brilliant Courtney Hughes is back collecting gifts and food for Oxfordshire’s vulnerable and elderly this Christmas, and Milton Park has two donation places for toiletries and non-perishable food.

Founded in 2012 by Courtney, Secret Santa 365 distributes donated items to Oxfordshire’s community including charities, hospitals, hospices, and the homeless community.

Secret Santa 365 has distributed more than 50,000 gifts to the sick, elderly, lonely and vulnerable members of the community.

Milton Park is proud to be one of Secret Santa 365’s many drop-off points that are across Oxfordshire.

Please help this year’s appeal by donating anything you can to the Secret Santa Appeal.


The Secret Santa 365 boxes are located at:

  • Innovation Centre, 99 Park Drive - toiletries only
  • Tangoe, 9-10 Park Square – non-perishable food only



The boxes will be available right up until Christmas Eve.

If you have any other gifts you would like to share, there is a list below of all the places where there are donation boxes.

Milton Park would also like to say a big congratulations to Courtney who not only holds a BCAv for Volunteering & Charity work but also, in October this year, Courtney received a British Empire Medal and was honoured by Her Majesty The Queen in her Birthday Honours List. Congratulations Courtney.

Please help us to share "The Gift of Giving" this year in our community.
