Camp Simcha – Toy Collection

Category: Collectathon

Our Toy Drive is always an exciting annual event supported by the community to bring a boost to children spending the festive season in hospital. This year it is more important than ever so… Be a Toy Drive Hero!


Nurseries, schools, chederim, synagogues, workplaces and community groups all run collections for us. This year these may be limited due to Covid-19 so we are calling on our supporters to get involved and to create their own Toy Drive collection points where people can drop off new toys.


With hospital playrooms closed this year due to Covid-19 and no visitors allowed, the children need your toys more than ever.


All toys need to be brand new and wipeable so no cuddly toys please. Hospitals are generally short of toys which are suitable for babies and also teenagers, so these are particularly appreciated. It’s easy to add your toys or gifts to your online supermarket order and your donations can make such a difference. Your toys will be delivered to over 120 hospital wards and hospices throughout London, Hertfordshire, Essex and Manchester.


Our Toy Drive heroes come in all shapes and sizes – some help us with driving and deliveries, some with collections, some by buying toys –  and you can you can also be our hero by spreading the word and promoting the Camp Simcha Toy Drive in school, shul and on Facebook groups.


If you want to be one of our Toy Drive heroes – and you or your school, nursery, shul, cheder, community group or workplace wants to hold their own Toy Drive collection for us, or if you can help with driving, please contact who can arrange for boxes and marketing materials to be delivered to you. All you need to do is collect the new toys; we will do the rest!
