Christmas Toy Run
17th December 2017 @ 09:30 - 12:00
Preliminary details for the 2017 Children’s Hospital Toy Run
The format will be as in previous years. Leaving McDonalds at Markeaton Park around 9.45am, riding together, we will arrive at the hospital at approximately 10:00am. We will then ride around to the Children’s Hospital Entrance where we will park our bikes. We will join the staff for tea/coffee and mince pies and there will be an opportunity for the children to have their photos taken with us and our bikes.
Fancy Dress is optional!!
Following this, there will be an opportunity to visit the ward to hand deliver presents to the children – I understand that some people might not be comfortable doing this therefore this part is purely optional.
It is expected that the whole visit (including time on the ward) will be around 2 hours, with the day scheduled to end at approximately 12:00.
With regards to bringing toys, please be aware that the Children’s Hospital is unable to accept any second-hand items.
Our Contact at the hospital suggested that brand-new teddies are always a welcome gift. Of course other gifts will be appreciated. When wrapping your gifts up, please indicate whether they are suitable for a boy, girl or either and the age range the present is suitable for.
Please bear in mind when buying your gifts that the Children range from 0 – 18 years of age.
