There are a number of fundraising events and initiatives organised throughout the year which all raise money for the Toy Trust and these funds are then distributed to many charities in the UK and abroad who work to better the lives of disabled and disadvantaged children.
The Toy Trust Twitter account is being launched ahead of what will be the biggest fundraising event it has ever staged, The Toy Trust Isle of Wight Big Challenge, which takes place on Saturday 7th June 2014. The event will see 250 toy industry members take part in either a 130km bike ride, 20km walk, 20km run or a biathlon consisting of a 130km cycle ride and 20km run.
You can get behind your industry colleagues by visiting the Virgin Money Giving event page and sponsoring them now.
The Toy Trust username is @TheToyTrust and to share updates about the challenge leading up to and during the event on 7th June you can use the hashtag #ToyTrustIOW2014
