All of the children and staff would like to thank the Turbinia Pub for their fantastic generosity. During the week prior to Christmas, Walworth staff collected an amazing selection of toys from the Turbinia.
This was as a result of the collections made by Gary Soakell and his friends in their Annual Toy Run. The Toy Run has been in existence for 12 years and has provided a huge array of toys for children around the area. The run itself takes in many areas of County Durham and is supported by the Blazing Squad who also receive and collect donations to give to worthy causes.
Head Teacher, Mr Peter Wallbanks, said, “This was a huge act of kindness to support our children. The customers and staff of the Turbinia work tirelessly to support good causes with all their efforts and it was really kind of them to consider Walworth for their support. The children at Walworth called the toys ‘mint’ and their faces showed their overall delight.
Many thanks to the Turbinia”.
