Brent Cross hosts Mother’s Day Toy Exchange to support local children’s charity


Brent Cross will be warming the hearts of local mums as it hosts The Mother’s Day Toy Exchange on Friday, 29 March from 4pm-7pm. At the event, children from across London are invited to bring a pre-loved toy to the centre in exchange for a gift bag of goodies for their mum or a loved one of their choice.

All of the toys collected will be donated to Norwood’s Kennedy Leigh Family Centre, a local children’s charity which provides much-needed support to hundreds of children, young people and their families during their time of need. As a thank you for their generosity, the first 70 kids who donate a toy will be given an exclusive gift bag packed full of sweet treats, mini pamper kits and beauty samples from our retailers including Rituals, Kiehl’s and Paperchase.

Chris Barnes, General Manager of Brent Cross, says: “Mother’s Day presents the perfect opportunity to make your mum feel special and, while we know most kids would love to buy their mum a treat, sometimes the pocket money doesn’t stretch that far.

“That’s why we decided to launch The Mother’s Day Toy Exchange – to give kids the chance to get their hands on a gift for mum while giving back to charity and donating any toys to local children who might be less fortunate. We’re proud to be partnering with The Kennedy Leigh Family Centre and to support the amazing work they do in the city.”

The Mother’s Day Toy Exchange will take place outside the Tesla store in Brent Cross. Make sure you get there quick to get your hands on one of our exclusive gift bags.
