Toy Trust shows support for Children Today!

Written by Emma on 25th May 2018

We’re delighted that our charity has been chosen to receive a substantial grant of £10,000 from the Toy Trust, the charity founded by the British Toy and Hobby Association!

As the toy industry’s main charity, the Toy Trust supports charities that help disadvantaged children within the UK and abroad. With the help of the many supporters of the trust, over £4 million has been raised by the Toy Trust since it was created.  From the hundreds of requests it receives for funding each year, the trust awards grants to the 70-80 charities from those applications that it feels will impact those most in need, both financially and practically.

Matthew Jones, Head of Digital & Toy Trust Services at the British Toy & Hobby Association comments: “Children Today is an inspirational charity and it’s evident that it is delivering real and tangible change to young people’s lives and their families through the provision of mobility equipment.

“At the Toy Trust we were impressed with Children Today’s considered approach to the children the charity supports as they are bringing relief to those that need it most. It was clear to the Toy Trust Committee that our support will go on to provide movement, mobility and happiness to many young people – which is something very close to the heart of the Toy Trust.”

Chief executive of Children Today Ben Partridge comments: “Grants like this are crucial to help us continue our essential work in enabling children with disabilities across the country to have more independence. We are delighted to have gained the backing of such a high profile organisation as the British Toy and Hobby Association through this generous donation that will help make a real difference to the lives of many families.” 

Thank you for your support!
