Toy Drive

Over 10,000 toys collected, sorted and delivered to children in hospital in London and Manchester

Our annual Toy Drive is a highlight of the Camp Simcha calendar

Annually, our Toy Drive sees over 10,000 toys collected. Nurseries, schools, synagogues, chederim, workplaces, community groups and individuals all get involved, creating Toy Drive collection points where people can drop off new toys, ready to be delivered to children in hospital over the festive season.

Our famous packing day sees teams of fantastic volunteers helped us sort and organise all the toys, ready to be delivered by more volunteers to over 120 hospital wards and hospices throughout London, Hertfordshire, Essex and Manchester.

If you would like to volunteer for our packing day, please contact us

If your school, nursery, shul, cheder, community group or workplace wants to hold their own Toy Drive collection for us, get in touch and we can arrange for boxes and marketing materials to be delivered to you. All you need to do is collect the toys; we will do the rest!

Watch the video below to follow the toys’ journey, from when you put your toy in our collection box to it being sorted at our Toy Drive packing day and then delivered to the children in hospital!

Dear Camp Simcha,

Thank you for your donation of gifts and toys that Camp Simcha’s Simi the monkey mascot bought in on his visit.
The children loved the visit and playing with the toys.
