Bournemouth Storage and Terrific Toy Appeal

Posted on

Our Bournemouth storage facility is helping a great Christmas toy appeal this year by becoming a drop-off point for donated new toys – which will give a special surprise to sick children forced to stay in hospital over Christmas.

This year 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, or at any of these locations, until Friday, December 16:

– 4Com – Aviation Park West, Christchurch

– Top Cat Media – The Creative Quarter, Scotter Road, Bournemouth

– MK Estates & Lettings – Holdenhurst Road, Bournemouth

– The Funky Peach – Ashley Road, Poole

This appeal will put a smile on so many kids’ faces this Christmas… please help if you can!
