Christmas came early for Thames Hospice after they received a bumper crop of toys following a donation drive on ITV’s Daybreak for national hospice charity Help the Hospices

The TV show asked viewers to donate toys in retailer Toys R Us and more than 6,000 were donated across the UK. Thames Hospice received over 40 toys kindly donated by the local community at the Reading Toys R Us store.

The toys will be used by children visiting terminally ill relatives and by the hospice’s patient and family services team at events to raise funds.
