Epoch donates 1,000 Sylvanian Families toys to the Children’s Air Ambulance charity

Epoch Making Toys has donated 1,000 Sylvanian Families toys the Children’s Air Ambulance charity to benefit sick and hospitalised children away from families.

Children benefitting from the life-saving services of the Children’s Air Ambulance are often away from their homes for many weeks, having been transferred to specialist hospitals all over the UK by helicopter.

Epoch hopes that its donation of sets including Walnut Squirrels, Bramble Hedgehogs and more, will provide some joy for the children and their loved ones during the difficult times.

Neil Bandtock, managing director, Epoch Making Toys, 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 by road.
