Thank Yous for June


During volunteer’s week on the 1st- 7th June, we presented certificates to all our wonderful and dedicated volunteers at The Toy House. We are so lucky to have such a fantastic, hardworking team who support the daily running of our community hub and we wanted to say an extra special thank you.

We would like to say a big thank you for all of the individuals who have helped fundraise for The Toy House recently. At The Toy House, we are dependent on the support of our lovely visitors, donations, fundraising, and grants to keep our charity running. For this reason, we are so grateful for the generosity and kindness of those who take the time to fundraise for us.

Firstly, we would like to thank Trafford Housing Trust for their generous grant and their continuing support. We are so appreciative of your contributions.

We are thrilled to report that Tracey Reece and her friends have raised funds for The Toy House by completing a sponsored ride at Longford park on April 14th. It was such a fun afternoon and we loved cheering you all on. A big well done to you all for taking part and ginormous thank you for all your efforts.

Students from Wellacre Academy have kindly raised money by holding various fundraising events at Turin House. We would like to say a massive thank you for thinking of us.

We are delighted to announce that we have been selected as one of the three Co-op community fundraising projects. We would like to say a big thank you for all the Co-op members for choosing us. We feel so lucky to have been chosen and currently, the Co-op members have raised a whopping £1221.62 for our charity. The purpose of the project is to expand our small premises so that we can offer messy play to our young visitors. Please keep supporting us, thank you. 

In addition to this, over the past few months, Lisa Drabble and her Co-op team have decided to raise additional funds for The Toy House. Thank you all so much for your hard work.

Finally, thank you to Manchester IT for their continued support and guidance with our computer system.   

Thank you all once again,

The Toy House team.

Summer is here!


To celebrate our warmer months, we are delighted to announce that this term’s theme is Summer. Within this theme, we will be exploring holidays, the beach, the ocean, and new life. All of our fantastic resources and creative craft activities will support this theme. We have our fingers crossed for beautiful blue skies and sunshine, so we can make the most of our outside area!

We look forward to seeing you soon,

The Toy House team


We are so excited to be writing our first blog post about The Toy House charity. On this blog, we will be sharing with you what we are up to at The Toy House and keeping you up to date with any future events.

The Toy House is a warm and welcoming community hub filled with lots of friendly people for you to meet and chat to.

Here is a snapshot of some of the things that we get up to at The Toy House:

At The Toy House, we host stay and play sessions for parents/carers, childminders, and children to meet others and play with our wide range of resources. Often compared to Aladdin’s magical cave, The Toy House is bursting with specialist resources for your little ones to play with.

Our divine cream teas and delicious afternoon teas for adults have become an increasingly popular choice with our customers. Why don’t you phone up and arrange a catch up with your friends over our scrumptious, homemade sweet and savoury treats?

We host children’s parties which guarantee fun for all involved! We love to personalise our parties to cater for your child’s interests. Within the cost of the party, we decorate The Toy House to meet the theme of your party, provide a wonderful spread to meet the dietary requirements of your guests, and host fun-filled activities. 

Everyone can enjoy our fantastic sensory room including our little visitors and people with onset dementia.

To be able to host these activities for our community, we are so lucky to have our wonderful volunteers. To join our friendly and supportive team, please email us at [email protected], contact The Toy House on 0161 746 8185 or pop in, we would love to have a chat with you!

We hope to see you soon,

The Toy House team
