Toy Box appeal launches this Saturday!

This Saturday the 30th November KidsOut’s Toy Box appeal will be launching – first stop Cardiff. Join the team of Mercure Cardiff Holland Hotel and Spa at The Capitol shopping centre (10am-4pm) for a day off festive fun, and drop of a toy as part of our appeal. Whether you want to be virtually transported to Lapland, or would prefer to get your boogie on to an Elvis impersonator, the pop up shop will have it all!

The Toy Box appeal is there to support the less fortunate children this Christmas, to make sure no one goes without. The toys will be given to disadvantaged children, most who have had to flee domestic violence – both this Christmas and the forthcoming year, and are left with very little. The Toy Box works by bringing stability and familiarity back into their lives, so all donations are very much appreciated.

The hotel and spa have teamed up with South Wales Echo to give you a chance to win a luxury weekend away at the Mercure London Bridge hotel (London). Simply bring a copy of Echo down to the shop, along with a toy to donate to KidsOut’s appeal, and you’ll be entered into a draw to win – easy as pie. Talking of pie’s, The Mercure Cardiff Holland Hotel will also have plenty of complimentary mulled wine and mince pies on offer, so you can face time Santa in a state of the art digital grotto whilst truly indulging in the Christmas cheer.

KidsOut ambassador Neil Brierley will be joining the team from 12-1pm on Saturday to enjoy the entertainment on offer, and everyone is welcome.
