The BTHA’s charity arm is joining forces with Great Ormond Street Hospital to raise money to re-vamp and re-equip the hospital’s five play therapy areas that help seriously ill children cope with their stay at the hospital.
Some £45,000 has been pledged to this end and a big part of that is the Toy Trust G.O.S.H. FUNdraiser Day at Rutland Water on Saturday 11th June.
The event will consist of a 27km bike ride; seven km run; costume three-legged race; costume egg and spoon race and culminates in a costume raft build and race on the reservoir.
Team members can enter as many or as few events as possible, so everyone can participate.
You can enter a team in the event now by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org with your team name, company name and expected number of participants – six per team (although companies can enter a second team or individuals/couples can contact Simon to join another team).
Each participant is asked to raise a minimum of £300 sponsorship for the event, with a goal of £5,000 per team.
Set up a sponsorship page at www.virginmoneygiving.com, search for The Toy Trust and create a personal fundraising page in connection with the Trust. Or collect the money in house and make one total team transfer to the Toy Trust account.
Teams should organise their own travel to the event. Participants are welcome to bring along family members, as there will be activities to get involved with and, for children, a teddy-bears picnic.
