Festive toy drive hits top gear

Mansfield Mayor Tony Egginton gives a civic send-off to a seasonal charity toy drive on Saturday which brought Christmas cheer top sick children.

The Mansfield and Ashfield Driving Instructors Association (MADIA) has been collecting toys for the past two months — generously donated by shoppers and Chad readers buying their own Christmas gifts.

The toys were sent in convoy from Mansfield Civic Centre on Saturday morning to King's Mill Hospital, where they were received by nurses and members of the Parents Association For Seriously Ill Children (PASIC).
