Rosie Marshall, Head of Toys and Children’s Gifts (AIS), said

We were blown away by the generosity of our exhibitors and would like to thank them so much for their support. These toys will really make a difference in the local communities where they will be received. The donation will be split between Worcester Street Kitchen and Radio Cherwell.

Worcester Street Kitchen is a homeless charity that will be raffling off the toys to fund its invaluable work supporting and feeding those in need. While Radio Cherwell, based at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, will use the toys to entertain and engage children receiving treatment.
