Little Tikes shares the fun with a year of charity donations

One of the leading toy brands donates hundreds of products to hospitals and hospices.

Giving everything from kitchens to play houses, Cozy Coupes to infant pre-school toys, leading toy company Little Tikes has shown a big-hearted approach to the UK’s children by donating toys to a huge number of hospitals, hospices and charities throughout 2015.

Little Tikes has worked closely with a number of hospitals for children with often life-threatening illnesses to brighten up their play areas with brand new fun and exciting toys.

These hospitals, which rely heavily on donations and fundraising, include the John Radcliffe Hospital, Kettering General Hospital, Milton Keynes Hospital, Leeds Royal Infirmary, Stoke Mandeville and the Oxford Children’s Hospital to name but a few.

In many cases Little Tikes has helped to create brand new play areas within hospitals wards and grounds which have had a huge impact on the children who need to stay by giving them something new to smile about.

And to top it all, last December Little Tikes donated hundreds more toys – all handed out by the big man himself, Father Christmas – to children who sadly spent the festive season in a hospital ward.

Michelle Lilley, the marketing manager at Little Tikes says: “It’s vitally important to us here at Little Tikes that we share the fun with everyone. We take great pleasure in gifting toys to those children who otherwise wouldn’t have any, or are unwell, and are delighted to have been able to extend this further than ever before in 2015.”
