DCV Christmas Fundrasing for Treetops Children’s Ward at University Hospital North Durham

It was decided at last year’s AGM that we should do something charitable this year, and as such we are launching this appeal. I’ve been in touch with Treetops Children’s Ward at University Hospital North Durham and arranged to collect toys on their behalf to use as gifts for the kids at Christmas and for further use during the year.

The culmination of this will be a small club run (fancy dress encouraged) to the hospital to deliver the toys. I’m hoping to drum up some media interest also.

Please see the attached flyer; if every member and those who follow on FB were to collect or donate even a small amount, collectively this would make a massive difference to the ward. The flyer (DCV-Charity-Ride-V3) is designed to be printed out and passed around friends and family, and placed in your workplaces. I’d really like to see everyone get involved and show what a caring bunch we are..! I will arrange collection of all toys donated, or alternatively a cash donation can be made to the website on the flyer (www.gofundme.com/2eubz8b8) and all monies received will be spent on toys.

New or boxed and good condition toys only please,at the request of the hospital.

Thanks in anticipation of your support and generosity.”
