Sunday 17th December
Depart: 10.30am
The cafe’s annual Christmas Toy Run into central London will be leaving at 10.30am on Sunday 17th December to visit and drop off presents to the children’s wards at two London hospitals:
St Marys Hospital, Paddington
Northwick Park Hospital, Harrow
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 hospitals advise against stuffed toys and sweets – the nursing 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, for the 26th year, once again is kindly looking after the logistics involved with this special occasion.
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 2023 with, as always, any surplus gifts being distributed at a later date to various children’s organisations, homes and groups.
Later the same day, Sunday 17th December at 7pm, why not join us for hot mince pies at the cafe’s annual candlelit Christmas Carol Service.
