Toy Retailers Association announces £27,000 raised for charity at DreamToys

The Toy Retailers Association and DreamToys selection committee has announced that £27,000 was raised for charity at DreamToys 2018. The charity donation scheme will return for 2019, raising money for children’s charities across the UK by selling on toys brought to the event.

“Thanks to the generosity of our exhibitors, we raised a fantastic amount at DreamToys 2018 and we look forward to supporting children’s charities again this Christmas” commented Gary Grant, Chair of the DreamToys selection committee. “DreamToys is a magical event for the UK toy industry. It’s a real joy to spread that magic with such worthy causes.”

Charities helped in 2018 included the Mothers’ Union, Sheffield Children’s Hospital, Tŷ Hafan children’s hospice near Cardiff, Toybox Glasgow, Cheshire’s Adventure Farm Trust and Belfast Central Mission, among many others from across the UK and Ireland.

DreamToys 2019 will take place on Wednesday 13 November at St Mary’s Church in Marylebone, London. Run by the Toy Retailers Association, DreamToys is the most authoritative, independent list of the top toys for Christmas. The event is attended by hundreds of press and members of the toy industry and signals the official countdown to Christmas.
