Celebs George Rainsford and Imogen Thomas have pledged their support to Spin Master’s 2019 Charity Advent Calendar initiative.
Teaming up for the third year running with KidZania, the indoor city run by kids at Westfield London, Shepherd’s Bush, Spin Master is once again spreading a little festive joy to children across the country this Christmas.
Both celebs have chosen causes close to their hearts, which Spin Master will support with toys for disadvantaged children over the festive period.
George Rainsford, who play Dr Ethan Hardy in Casualty, says: “I’m thrilled to once again be able to nominate Kidscape to receive a bundle of these brilliant toys. Kidscape’s mission is to provide children, families, carers and professionals with advice and training to prevent bullying and protect young lives. These toys will go to great use especially at this time of year.”
Welsh Model and TV personality Imogen Thomas, who has two young daughters, has chosen Rays of Sunshine.
“Being a single mum can be tough at times, but I simply can’t imagine how parents cope when their children are seriously ill or dealing with life-limiting illness,” she says. “I’m nominating the amazing Rays of Sunshine charity to receive a bundle of toys as they will help bring a little joy to families facing the most difficult of times this Christmas.”
A further £1,000 of Toys will also be donated to KidsOut, a charity that is supported each year by KidZania, and is the official charity partner of London Toy Fair, which supports disadvantaged children, many of whom end up in refuges as victims of domestic abuse.
Not only that, every day until Christmas, one lucky child who visits KidZania will get to open a door on the calendar, which stands pride of place in KidZania’s airport.
