P5 fundraising for Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity (Sick Kids)


In P5 we are going to be doing a toy sale to raise money for the Sick Kids Hospital (Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity). It is going to be on Thursday 4th April in school near the P5 classrooms.

If you have one or two toys that you would like to donate can you please bring them in next week and by Monday 1st of April at the latest.

Please don’t bring in toys that you want to keep, you can bring in toys that you don’t play with any more or that have been sitting in your cupboard. It might be a good time to have a spring clean!

Please put any toys you bring in on the table in the P5 library.

Some examples of toys we would like are


Action figures or Barbies

Soft toys


Baby toys so you can buy them for younger brother and sisters

Board games

Loom bands



Can you please make sure the toys are clean and good quality.
