Generation Media passes £2k in fundraising for the Toy Trust charity

Generation Media braved the wind and the rain and took to the streets of London this past weekend as part of its ongoing fundraising for Toy Trust.

Four members of the team – Jonathan Chambers, Josh Quirke, Imogen Llewellyn and Jacob Gardner – took part in The Vitality Big Half on Sunday, March 10th. They were joined at the start line by illustrious names such as Sir Mo Farah, David Weir CBE and Charlotte Purdue, although that was the last they would see of them.

Fundraising to date (which began in November 2018 with Generation Media’s KidCon18) has surpassed £2,000 and will continue through to the Toy Trust Big Challenge 2019 where the aim is to have at least 10 participants in events ranging from the 5km Walk to the Triathlon.

Lisa Morgan, managing director, said: “We are very proud of our team’s passion and achievement in signing up and completing the event. Generation Media invest heavily to support relevant causes that help children and young people in need. As well as our activity with the Toy Trust we strive to support colleagues both internally and across the industry in their fundraising efforts.”

The Toy Trust Big Challenge 2019 will take place on Saturday 8 June at Oxford Wet n Wild in Wallingford, Oxfordshire. Toy Trust is a Childrens Charity raising money for young disadvantaged and disabled Children across London and the UK, predominately for the toy industry.
