Hilton Smythe's Toy Appeal

Every year we hold a Toy Appeal to support the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.

Overall we've donated 154 toys and £1,862.


The Toy Appeal is a great opportunity to put a smile on the Children's face even though they may be spending Christmas in hospital.


Royal Manchester Children's Hospital is a national centre of excellence in the following areas:

  • Bone marrow transplantation, for which it is the main centre outside of London
  • Burns treatment - the hospital houses the largest paediatric burns unit in the country
  • Critical care – the hospital's paediatric intensive care unit is the largest in the country, looking after patients ranging from newborn babies to 16-year-olds.


Royal Manchester Children's Hospital is focused on helping families to stay together particularly when they have long or frequent stays in hospital. For more information on what Royal Manchester Children's Hospital do, visit their webpage.
