In 2016 KidsOut was named the official charity partner of the British Toy and Hobby Association’s (BTHA) annual Toy Fair, collecting toys in the event’s annual Trolley Dash.
The Trolley Dash sees volunteers pass through the Toy Fair aisles collecting donations from exhibitors. Taking place in the fair’s last half hour, the Trolley Dash is an annual tradition passing extra stock and displays on to disadvantaged children. Toys and furniture donated to KidsOut in the Trolley Dash go to local refuges and children who have experienced domestic abuse through Toy Box.
