Thank You For Supporting The 2012 Reading Toy Run!

On behalf of all those in organising the 2012 Reading Toy Run! May we extend our heartfelt thanks to all those who participated in whatever way. Whether you were one of the 1700 on the ride, one of the 110 Marshals, one of the crowd of spectators, a supporting local business, one of the many donors of either cash or gifts - it all added up to make a great day and an occasion that will benefit a huge number of children in south of England. As always Barnardo's at High Close School will do a marvelous job of distributing the gifts to where they are needed most within their own centres and also other local projects.

The kids really do appreciate the effort
