Epoch brings joy to children's charity
Firm donates 1000 Sylvanian Families toys to Children's Air Ambulance charity
A donation of Sylvanian Families toys to the Children’s Air Ambulance charity means the tiny, anthropomorphic woodland animals will now delight sick children in hospitals across the UK.
Epoch making toys is donating 1000 of its iconic toys to hospital-bound children in need of some lighthearted cheer. The generous donation includes sets of the iconic Beechwood Hall – the large country-style house (pictured) that is the best-selling product in the popular toy range every Christmas – and many of the famous family sets including the Walnut Squirrels and Bramble Hedgehogs, which have been charming generations for years.
Children benefitting from the life-saving services of the Children’s Air Ambulance are often away from the familiarity of their homes for many weeks at a time, having been transferred by helicopter to specialist hospitals all over the UK. Epoch hopes that its Sylvanian Families donation will provide some joy for the children and their loved ones during these difficult times.
Neil Bandtock, Epoch Making Toys MD, said: “As with most charities, the Children’s Air Ambulance can only operate with donations, so it’s fantastic to be able to give some of our Sylvanian Families toys to bring moments of happiness to children caught up in these distressing situations.”
The Children’s Air Ambulance is the only national service dedicated to transferring critically sick babies and children to emergency care four times faster than if they were to go by road. Visit www.childrensairambulance.org.uk for more information.
