Toy Trust Big Thames Challenge 2015
team of highly trained athletes group of staff from Hornby Hobbies HQ is set to take part in this year's Toy Trust Big Thames Challenge, taking place this June in Marlow, Buckinghamshire.
The Toy Trust is the toy industry’s charity which raises money predominantly from the toy industry, its suppliers and friends, and distributes the monies raised to charities helping disadvantaged and disabled children within the UK and abroad.
The Toy Trust Big Thames Challenge will feature a number of challenges for participants to take part in, including a 20km Thames Path walk, 20km Thames Path run and a 75 mile bike ride to Oxford and back. The fundraising goal of the event is to raise £175,000, which will go to support a nominated UK based mobility charity, details of which will be announced shortly.
While you might not feel up to a 75 mile bike ride, you can still get involved and support us by hopping over to our Hornby Hobbies eBay Archive. Every week from now until June, we'll be putting some great lots up for auction in aid of the Toy Trust, including exclusive items from all of our brands.
On offer this week, some unique Stereo Lithography Prototypes of Scalextric models. Keep checking back to see what's on offer in the coming weeks.
