Rainbows are looking for votes in the ScS Big Toy Bonanza

To help put a smile on children’s faces this International Play Day (7 August), ScS has announced it is donating hundreds of toys to a range of deserving charities across the nation. 

The sofa and carpet specialist, ScS, is calling on Leicester residents to visit its local store, situated in Fosse Retail Park, to vote for which of the following local charities they would like to receive this fantastic donation and we are in the running! 

Voting opens on International Play Day, which celebrates the importance of imaginative play in children’s lives and will close on Saturday 31 August. 

The chosen charity will receive a bumper delivery of fun and interactive toys to help bring happiness to hundreds of deserving youngsters, including items like Lego, creative art and crafts supplies, puzzle and card games, toy dolls and action figures, as well as sensory toys. 

David Knight, CEO of ScS, said: “We are proud to support our local community and as a business it is incredibly important to us that we give back and contribute to local projects. It is our absolute pleasure to be delivering toys during the summer holidays and helping hundreds of children to enjoy play time.  

“We want to offer local people the chance to nominate the charity that will benefit from our Big Toy Bonanza. Simply vote in store throughout August and let us know which local cause you would like to support. We can’t wait to welcome everyone into store as well as help create a little summer holiday magic.” 

Maxine Court, Assistant Play Specialist here at Rainbows, said: “We often use toys as a method of communication with the children we see, both in terms of explaining what is happening around them and for them to express how they are feeling. A donation of toys, books and games as part of the ScS Big Toy Bonanza would make such a difference not only to the work we do at Rainbows, as the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people with life-limited conditions, but more importantly to the youngsters who rely on us. Every vote cast for Rainbows will go a long way to helping to brighten short lives.”
