Gloucestershire children’s charity the Pied Piper is appealing for new and nearly new, good quality toys for sick and disabled children in hospital this December.

Pied Piper is collecting until 20th December after which there will be a huge toy count up and mass distribution to the children.

Already at about 40% of target with donations received and pledged there is still a long way to go in the next two weeks, so a big shout out to county companies to help swell the toy pool. There are many deals and BOGOFs in all the stores and online to help.

Firms and individuals can drop off at various collections points; the charity HQ at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. Some firms are acting as a mini collection point for staff, friends and suppliers including Allcooper Security & Fire, Officeworx and all Baylis branches.
