Children From Gecko School Help To Sort Toys At CU Bank Toy Library

As part of their Community Services programme, children from the Gecko School Phuket came to the PCF toy library at the CU bank to help sort out the toys and put them back into their sets. Some running repairs were made to toys that had been slightly damaged. 

Stella brought some of her own toys to donate to the library.

New Toy Library Set To Open November 7th.

The Phuket Community Foundation will be opening a new toy library at Kaeharassada Credit Union, 68/901 Srisutat Rd. on November 7th.

If you have any toys that you dont want any more then please donate them to the PCF toy library project. Many children do not have any toys at home because their parents cannot afford them. Our toy libraries around Phuket have been immensely popular with children in rural schools and have given great pleasure to them. Toys are a wonderful way to help children develop their imaginations and social skills as well as a fun way to learn. We would love to have some new toys too.

Please contact Cindy Ratcliffe on 0887680650 if you would like to donate a toy to this project.

Toys are also being collected at Gecko School in Thalang, Phuket International Academy, British International School and Club Asia Fitness Centre at Royal Phuket City Hotel.
