  2. Hi Ben

    As you know, the Lions Club of Reading are supporting the Toy Run this year as it's for such a worthy cause. We'd like to raise it's profile by adding some information on our web site and linking it to your site - hopefully raising some more awareness. If it's OK with you, I'll create some content using some info from this site. Once It's ready - I'll send it to you to check you are happy with it.

    My number is on your answerphone!

    Thanks
    Andrea

  6. Where can I donate a present? We stand and watch the run go past us down Lower Earley Way every year and my children are thrown sweets, and every year I wish I had given something back. This day has become traditional to us, when we see the bikers and outfits we know christmas is on its way, how can I give back?

  7. Carla - it's difficult for the run to stop and pick up toys enroute, so the best thing is to try and get it to Foster Wheeler car park. It can go in a support van. About midday would be ok and you'd have plenty of time to get back to your vantage point! Thanks
