Toy joy for our 5p Bus

Our Community Services Assistant with toys from the Bay Food Bank

A huge ‘thank you’ goes to Bay Food Bank in North Tyneside for helping us to spread festive joy to disadvantaged families and children around the region.

With Christmas just around the corner, toys are being snapped up on our 5p Bus, so it was great to have an offer of a small toy mountain recently from Bay Food Bank!

Scooters and teddies, games and jigsaws were among the many toys donated to our 5p Bus, which will take them out on its routes around the region before Christmas.

“Toys are obviously in great demand at this time of year,” said Iris Boyd, 5p Bus Manager, “so it’s always a bonus to know we have a good supply to get us through the festive season. I can’t thank Bay Food Bank and our many other supporters enough for their generosity.”

To find out where the 5p Bus visits in your area or for details of how to donate, ring Iris on 0191 228 0111 or email
