Ace Cafe Xmas Toy Run

By Web editor, 21 November 2013

The Ace Cafe's annual Christmas Toy Run into central London departs at 11am on Sunday December 15 to attend the children's wards of three hospitals...

Hospitals visited will be St Mary's (Paddington, 11.45am - 12.15pm), Royal Brompton (Chelsea, 1pm - 1.30pm), and Evelina Children's Hospital (Westminster, 2pm - 2.30pm).

As always, any surplus gifts will be distributed to various children's homes and groups.

Please bring gifts that are wrapped and labelled Boy/Girl/Age group. Because of allergies hospitals advise against stuffed toys and sweets - the nursing staff however may appreciate some sweeties!

On returning to the cafe, there will be prizes for the 'Best Dressed Bike' and the 'Best Dressed Rider', plus a hot cuppa!

After 15 years of heading up the toy run, Ron Miles will be retiring. He said "I started this run back in 1998, and have attended the event every year. It has been wonderful to see the smiles of the kids who are in hospital, and also to see the smiles of the riders who take part - it's a very emotional experience, and I would like us to make this year a big one!"
