The Toy Project

You may have seen that for the last 2 weeks we have been collecting used and new toys for The Toy Project.  Once again we have been overwhelmed by your amazing generosity!  Jane from The Toy Project has been equally delighted with the quality of the toys you gave us and has sent some pictures with some insight as to how the toys will be used in their new homes.  
This is quality stuff! Lovely to be able to use this with the grieving kids. Many & huge thanks!

One of the charities that The Toy Project support is Caris Islington

"We are amazed by the generosity of all the supporters of the Toy Project. Our charity works with children who have been bereaved - mostly children who have lost a parent - so we use all sorts of toys in the play therapy we do. We are SO grateful to you all at the toy project. It's been fantastic receiving the toys your supporters have been sending us. Your project is supporting us in a completely practical and useful way and we can't thank you enough. Lucky us that you are up and running in such a powerful way! Lydia, Caris Islington"

Other donations have been re-homed with PramDepot, the Ifor Ward at the Royal Free and Ambler Primary School!

A huge thank you to all those who donated!  

p.s. I was secretly delighted to see that my teenage heart-throb Jason Donovan has been a supportive patron of TheTOYProject since day one.  He regularly donates personal items that they auction to raise funds.  Those of us "of a certain age" will understand my inexplicable excitement at his fan twitter RT's and following the success of our collection!
