The British Toy & Hobby Association (BTHA) is delighted to have presented two Toy Trust Outstanding Contribution Awards, which are given to people who go above and beyond in raising funds for the Toy Trust and who complete great personal challenges.
Andrew Laughton and Clive Jones were both honoured for their commitment to fundraising and dedication to the Toy Trust.
Clive Jones was honoured for his loyal service to the Toy Trust charity committee, of which he was Chairman for a period and was one of its longest serving members. Clive established what became a very successful Toy Trust Golf Day – which was a fantastic industry fundraiser and achieved tens of thousands of pounds in fundraising for the charity over many years.
Also presented with an Outstanding Contribution Award was Andrew Laughton who, in June 2021, completed a 110km walk from MGA’s offices in Milton Keynes to the BTHA’s headquarter offices in London Bridge. The event took 4 days and through his incredible effort, more than £10,000 was raised for the charity.
Commenting on their awards, BTHA and Toy Trust Chairman Graham Canning said “It has given me great pride and pleasure to have been able to present both Clive and Andrew with a Toy Trust Outstanding Contribution Award. Their achievements are both a great example and inspiration to us all. It goes without saying that these special awards are given to those who have gone above and beyond, and so on behalf of all associated with the Toy Trust, my congratulations to them both on their very well-deserved accolades.”
