Children at the paediatric A&E department at King George Hospital were treated to more than 500 new toys from money raised by firefighters from Ilford Blue Watch.

The firefighters met up with Lesley Walters and Carlie Fortune from the Barley Lane, Goodmayes hospital on Friday, September 15, at Toys R Us, Horns Road, Newbury Park to buy toys.

Ally Warnock told the Recorder: “With the generous help of staff at Toys R Us we managed to fill three trolleys with toys that act as a distraction whilst the children are waiting to be seen by hospital staff.

“I would like to thank the people of Ilford for their ongoing support and generosity.”

The toys were bought using money raised through charity events throughout the year, including the next leg of their cycle around the perimeter of England.
