Toy donations for sick children
PUBLISHED: 15:00 21 December 2012
HUNDREDS of toys have been donated by people and organisations across North Somerset as part of a charity appeal.
Puxton Park launched its toy appeal for gifts which have been handed out to ill children at Children’s Hospice South West and local hospitals.
Kind-hearted members of the 1st Weston Village Cub Scouts raised £670 by undertaking a sponsored silence, which they then spent on toys for the appeal.
The toys were gathered in a Christmas sleigh at the park in Cowslip Lane, Hewish, ahead of being handed out on Wednesday and yesterday (Thurs).
Park managing director Alistair Mead said: “Our toy appeal has been a huge success and we are certain these gifts will put smiles on hundreds of poorly children staying in local hospitals or at the children’s hospice.
“Everyone has been very generous and we would like to say a huge thank you to all those people who have offered their support. In particular we would like to thank the cubs who decided to spend their sponsorship money on toys for our appeal.”
