Christmas Present Drive – show your support!

23rd October 2023

Olivia Valentine is fundraising for Holbeck Together (

Lloyds Banking Group employee, Olivia Valentine, has partnered with us for the last 3 years to organise and deliver a Christmas Present Drive for families across South Leeds.

Over the past 3 years, Olivia and her colleagues in Lloyds Banking Group have raised over £8,000 worth of Christmas presents, built up over 200 hampers, and wrapped almost 1,000 toys, gifts, and treats!

This year, we’ve gone digital! You can now make a financial donation to support the Christmas Present Drive on this JustGiving page where all money raised will be matched by Lloyds Banking Group through their ‘Matched Giving’ scheme.

You can still also donate any new toys in person at the Lloyds Banking Group HQ in Leeds – just pop by with a present (marked for the attention of Olivia Valentine):

We are always blown away by the sheer volume of presents and the amazing generosity of the Lloyds Banking Group staff. The joy we see from children receiving the presents is so special.

We hope our wider community and supporters will get behind this initiative to raise as much as possible in the run up to Christmas.
