Toys on the Table

Thank you to everyone who made a contribution to the hugely successful Toys on the Table campaign.

This annual charity appeal aims to collect donations of toys and gifts so that youngsters who wouldn’t normally get anything can. Staff were asked to donate new toys and gifts to show how much we care.

Last year thanks to the generous donations by members of the public, the Toys on the Table campaign was able deliver 10,000 toys to around 3,800 children across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. It also saw University of Leicester students volunteer to wrap the gifts in the run-up to Christmas.

The campaign, which was arranged by Estates and Campus Services, was a huge success. We were able to collect a massive 403 gifts and also £125 in the donation buckets 7 December.

Richard Gamble, who arranged the collections and campaign said: “I’d like to thank everyone who made a donation to the campaign or told their colleagues about it. I’m overwhelmed by the response, we are making a huge difference to our local community and every single toy donated will help to make a child’s Christmas so special.
