WonderDays Supports Shropshire Star’s Christmas Toy Appeal
A Shropshire experience days company has donated more than 60 toys to the local newspaper’s annual Christmas Toy Appeal.
Staff from WonderDays donated dozens of brand new toys, plus gifts suitable for older children, to the Shropshire Star’s collection.
Based on Stafford Park in Telford, WonderDays is family run business and the first national experience days company based in Shropshire.
Partnerships Manager Abi Sadler, who co-ordinated the toy collection, said it had been overwhelming just how many gifts were donated by the team and their families.
“As a family run business, many of us with young children ourselves, we really wanted to do something to help brighten up Christmas and bring a smile to those in hospital or undergoing treatment or care,” she said.
“While WonderDays launched at the start of this year, our sister company that provides hot air balloon rides has been based here in Shropshire for more than 28 years now.
“Supporting our community is and always has been really important to us and being able to do our bit, however small for the Shropshire Star’s Christmas Toy Appeal means a lot to all of us.
“We had such an amazing response from our team, with even had the families of our staff sending things in and ended up with more than 60 different gifts worth hundreds of pounds for the collection.”
WonderDays is a nationwide experience day company launched to provide a more flexible alternative to those buying experiences as gifts.
Director Matt Jones said he was delighted to be able to help and support this year’s Christmas toy appeal.
“The Shropshire Star’s annual Christmas gifts appeal is such a wonderful thing to do and we’re very proud to be able to support it however we can,” he said.
“The core ethos of our company is ‘Making The Everyday A WonderDay’ and this toy collection is a brilliant example of that.”
