Many Thanks Swansway Honda
Early December we were thrilled to meet Andrea and Lee who work for Swansway Honda, a car dealership company based in Bolton. They were given our name by Angela Gray who used to be a member of the Toy House when her family were young. The Swansway group is very generous and each year their 27 dealerships collect toys which they donate to Charities. At Easter they also distribute Easter Eggs to the same charities. So, a huge thank you to Angela for suggesting The Toy House as a recipient. Angela is head of fundraising for another charity and plans to visit here and share some of her tips on fundraising.
In our previous blog, we mentioned that we worked closely with Leonard Cheshire, the charity behind the Can Do program, on the Wellacre’s on-site Eco Centre project. Sadly, this six week project has now ended.
Lisa Miller is the Programme Co-ordinator for Leonard Cheshire and runs the Can Do Project. She contacted us to say that the students from Brentwood college like to create a mosaic for us with the help of artist Letitia Attwell. On February 12th , the students presented us with the outstanding mosaic. Everybody at The Toy House was overjoyed with the result and was so touched by the students’ hard work.
Prairie Schooner Stars Wars quiz night
We would like to say a big thank you to the Prairie Schooner Co-Owner, Robert MacRae, who arranged a Stars Wars quiz night in December for The Toy House. He continued to support us throughout the Christmas and New Year period by having money tins in his micro pub. We are delighted to announce that the Prairie Schooner customers raised a grand total of £115 for our charity.
