Raise money and bag yourself a bargain with this year’s Toy Trust Media Auction

The 2021 Toy Trust Media Auction is now open and ready to accept bids. The auction will close at 3pm on Friday, January 29th.

The second largest fundraising activity for the Toy Trust each year, the annual Media Auction gives companies the chance to bag themselves a media bargain, with all funds raised going to help small UK children’s charities that the Toy Trust has selected to support this year.

Airtime media spots have been donated from leading broadcasters and media channels. The result is a fantastic £80,000 of media space to bid for. Lots have been received from SKY, Nickelodeon, Turner, CITV, ITV Breakfast, Five (Milkshake), SuperAwesome, Ketchup TV, Yaaas TV and Diversity Media.  Details of each can be viewed on the Toy Trust Media Auction page, which will also be updated at intervals with the current highest bids.

Graham Canning, Toy Trust Committee Chairman, said: “On behalf of the Toy Trust Committee I’d like to thank all our media partners for their generous donations. Without them we would not be able to support so many causes that directly benefit children. 

“I’d also like to give special thanks to Arena Media’s Jeff Taylor for his dedication in helping us creating another superb list to bid on.”

If you would like to query on or make a bid for one or more of the Media Auction lots please email Matt@btha.co.uk or via the live auction page.
