The Toy Trust has joined forces with Christian Aid to donate £10,000 to support the children displaced by the civil war in Syria.

Over three million people have fled their homes in Syria and need food, shelter and medical supplies.

"The Toy Trust team felt there was a compelling case to support Syria's displaced children, as their desperate plight has clearly been highlighted by recent media reporting," said Foye Pascoe, chair of The Toy Trust.

"We donated to support children in the recent disasters in Haiti and Japan and clearly Syria now warrants our help.

"If you feel you can add to our donation then please send a cheque payable to The Toy Trust at the BTHA, and we will ensure the money gets to Christian Aid without delay."

The Toy Trust aims to raise £250,000 each year to help children's charities both at home and abroad. Over £3.5 million has been raised to date and donated to over 500 good causes.
