View Full Version : Children's hospital toy run 20th Dec

14-11-09, 09:56

My local SERV (http://www.serv.org.uk/Home/Default.aspx) (Bloodrunners) group in Herts and Beds is going to be doing a toy run for the hospitals we provide a service to:
- Stevenage Lister
- Welwyn Garden City QEII
- Bedford
- Luton & Dunstable

Santa suits will be worn :D as we ride our bikes round to each of the hospitals giving out the pressies. We've got a van with a driver to carry the pressies around, so numbers of gifts aren't a problem.

So we are looking for pressies to give out!
- Brand new/boxed
- We will do the wrapping and labelling
- Ages 0 - 15, boys and girls
- No teddy bears/furry things (hygiene issue)

All you parents out there probably have a better clue than I have about ideas. However, I'm told things like this go down well:
- Teen books (vampire books!)
- Dollies
- Colouring books and pens
- Craft-y type stuff they can make and take home

I'm sure there's more ideas out there!

We have a collection point and contact name in Welwyn Garden City (Campus West) or, if you can get loads of stuff, we might be able to arrange collection in the South East/Midlands. You can also send stuff to me - drop me a PM for contact details.

Addressed letters on headed paper, signed by the head and treasurer of our group are available if that helps oil the wheels.

Thanks for your help!
