    We Support...

    Here at The In Thing we are proud to support 3 Charities that we believe are directly relevant to our organisation. As a toy organisation we enjoy the feeling of helping Children with whom we are directly involved with. The charities we support are:



    Website: http://www.leukaemia.org

    Children with Leukaemia are the UK’s leading charity dedicated to fighting Britain’s biggest childhood cancer.

    For more than 20 years, they have been helping children affected by leukaemia. They fund research into causes and treatments, support families through welfare programmes and campaign on their behalf.




    Website: http://www.meningitis-trust.org

    The Meningitis Trust support everyone in the UK who is facing the challenge of life after meningitis through professional services. They help people practically, emotionally and financially. They also educate communities about the symptoms of meningitis, saving lives through early detection.



    Website: http://btha.co.uk/work/toytrust.php

    If you are a customer or supplier of our company please be aware we do not send out Christmas cards. Instead, we make an annual donation to the Toy Trust with what would be our Christmas Card budget plus of course save an odd tree or two :)

    The Toy Trust exists to raise money predominantly from the toy industry, its suppliers and friends; and distribute the money raised to young disadvantaged and disabled children's charities within the UK and abroad.

    Since its foundation in 1990 by the British Toy & Hobby Association, The Toy Trust has made a real difference to over a million children and their families in the UK and right across the world.

    With the help of the many supporters of the trust, from across the entire industry, over £2.8 million has been raised since its inception.

    There are many charities which benefit from the hard work and support of our members, many of which have their own charities that they support as individual companies.

    The Toy Trust has benefitted from the support it has been given from across the whole industry which takes pride in being able to give something back to children in need of help.

    The Toy Trust raises money throughout the year which is then distributed by a committee that meets five or six times each year to allocate grants to children's causes in need of support.
