Hi everyone, I hope you are all well.
After the great success of last years toy run I am please to let you all know that this years event will be held on Saturday 8th December 2012. I am just waiting for a reply from the JR and Chase Guildford that this date is ok and I will then get the ball rolling. So this is just a heads up.
It would be great to see you all supporting this event once again.

Many thanks
Iain

OK guys here we go.
I have now had the replys I was waiting for and its now all go. Both the JR Childrens hospital and Chase hospice in Guildford have said they would be delited to be involved in this years event. so we are all set to start.


The event will start at the Ace Cafe in London from 7am onwards and we will be looking to leave there at 10:30am sharp. We will then head over to oxford for the first drop then over to Guildford for the final part of the day. Further details will be put up closer to the date.

Now the aim of this event is to deliver toys to the children that will be spending time away from home over the Christmas festivities. With the children ranging from birth to late teens we need a cross selection of toys to cover the age ranges so please think of this when chosing your gift/gifts. The Chase Hospice will be emailing me a list of ideas that came forward for those not 100% sure on what to get soonce i have this email i will let you know what's on it.
Last year we saw some amazing toys given over and even a large toy company got involved and donated a few thousand pounds worth of toys which really struck home how thourtfull people are at this time of year. All I ask is every little counts and no matter how large or small your gifts are the smiles from the children are all the thanks we need.

I will be giving you all regular updates as we get closer to the date and I look forward to seeing the lists of people attending grow week by week.
Don't forget to check the main event page over at http://www.fueltopia.co.uk/events/fueltopia-and-fr...

Cheers
Iain

Guys i had an email yesterday from one of last years toy run drivers with this heart breaking news.

I have just received the heart breaking news that my friends son who was a patient at the CHASE hospice passed away yesterday, just after his 5th birthday.

His father thanked me personally after last years run and explained how vital the hospice was for his family. His sons condition was such that there was no chance of recovery, all they could do was make the short time he had as happy and pain free as possible. Although the hospice does see a handful of miracle recoveries most of the children will not live to adulthood.

So please, even if you can't make it on the day, think about donating a gift and passing it on to someone who is going to take along for you.

Can't fully commit yet but will try my hardest to make it along, last year was simply epic from both the petrolhead side with the awesome cars etc and from everyone's hearts.

Unfortunately I don't have as an insane car now as the Volvo I had for last years run hehe
