If you’d like to help sick children in Poole and Dorchester hospitals this Christmas – by donating new toys – you still have time!
Our Bournemouth storage facility is helping the Christmas toy appeal by being a drop-off point for donated new toys. The Daily Echo’s Toy Appeal – now in its 20th year – has teamed up with our friends at Amelia’s Rainbow Fund to provide gifts to ill youngsters.
The charity was set up following the death of eight-year-old Amelia-Grace Cooper in 2010, who died after battling an aggressive form of childhood cancer called neuroblastoma.
Every year, Amelia-Grace’s parents Chantel and Karl take gifts to the children’s ward at Poole and Dorchester hospitals on Christmas Day and Boxing Day – and to the families of children the charity has supported over the last two years who remain at home over the festive period.
The Toy Appeal is asking for gifts of new toys for all ages, but particularly for babies from newborn and teenagers. Sensory gifts are alway useful.
So, please drop off your new toys with us until Friday, December 16.
