Vote Leeds Cares in the ScS Big Toy Bonanza!

International Play Day - 7th August 2019

To help put a smile on children’s faces this International Play Day (7th August), ScS has announced it is donating hundreds of toys to a range of deserving charities across the nation.

The sofa and carpet specialist, ScS, is calling on Leeds residents to visit its local store, situated in Junction 27 Retail Park, to vote for which of the following local charities they would like to receive this fantastic donation; Cash for Kids, Leeds Cares or St. Gemma’s Hospice.

Voting opens on International Play Day, which celebrates the importance of imaginative play in children’s lives and will close on Saturday 31st August.

The chosen charity will receive a bumper delivery of fun and interactive toys to help bring happiness to hundreds of deserving youngsters, including items like Lego, creative art and crafts supplies, puzzle and card games, toy dolls and action figures, as well as sensory toys.

John Pattison, Commercial Director at ScS, said: “We are proud to support our local community and as a business it is incredibly important to us that we give back and contribute to worthwhile projects. It is our absolute pleasure to be delivering toys during the summer holidays and helping hundreds of children to enjoy play time. 

“We want to offer local people the chance to nominate the charity that will benefit from our Big Toy Bonanza. Simply vote in store throughout August and let us know which local cause you would like to support. We can’t wait to welcome everyone into store as well as help create a little summer holiday magic.”

Emma Brown, Cash for Kids Sales & Marketing Director said: “Cash for Kids is thrilled to have been chosen as one of the beneficiaries of the SCS Toy bonanza scheme across Manchester, Nottingham, Leeds and Glasgow. Across the UK, 1 in 3 children live in poverty. For these families Christmas is a luxury they cannot afford. Cash for Kids Mission Christmas appeal aspires to ensure that every child receives a visit from Santa. The toy bonanza donations will be distributed to disadvantaged children in each area as part of our Mission Christmas appeal.”

Kevin Gerrie, Director of Fundraising at Leeds Cares said: “Toy donations make a huge difference to children and young people who have to spend long periods of time at Leeds Children’s Hospital. Evidence shows that being happy and active whilst in hospital can help the recovery process; so we’re very grateful to ScS for including us in their Big Toy Bonanza.”
