Christmas Toy Run and Carol Service

Sunday 19th December
Depart: 10.30am
The cafe’s annual Christmas Toy Run will be leaving at 10.30am on Sunday 19th December to visit and drop off presents for vulnerable children and those supported by the charities:
Sufra – London NW10 0PW
The Toy Project – London N19 5QU
Brent Civic Centre – Wembley HA9 0FJ
As a response to COVID-19, and aware that many families with children need help today, the cafes annual Christmas Toy Run is leaving the Ace at 10.30am on Sunday 19th December, to deliver toys to charities helping children and families most in need. These charities have delivered toys to families living in hostels during lockdown, children with blood disorders shielding at home and to hospitals for presents for the children of all NHS workers.
Ace Cafe patrons have always shown huge generosity over the years in respect of donating toys for children in hospital over the Christmas period, and we are sure this will continue to be the case in 2021.
As well as being grateful for anything that you’d like to donate for ages 3- 11, the toys always asked for are:
LEGO sets
Arts and crafts sets
Spider-Man toys
Cars and planes
Please bring gifts unwrapped
Because of allergies advice is against stuffed toys and sweets – the charity volunteer staff however may appreciate some sweet treats!
On returning to the cafe, there will be prizes for the “Best Dressed Bike” and the “Best Dressed Rider” – and a hot cuppa
NB: On the morning of the run, all elves, reindeer, Santa’s, snowmen and pixies etc. are asked to please check in at the cafe with “Toy Run Ron”, who once again is kindly looking after the logistics involved with this special occasion.
Later the same day, Sunday 19th December at 7pm, why not join us for the cafe’s annual candlelit Christmas Carol Service!
