UK Shropshire Guild Toy projectThe National Scout and Guide Fellowship UK successfully completed the collection of the toys Phase 2 of the Fellowship Toy Project.

They collected 4938 toys, packed in 161 boxes, weighing 1345 kg and occupying a volume of 10 cubic meters. On request of UNHCR 70 boxes were sorted into four categories: sports goods, toys for babies, girls and boys toys, puzzles, games, books, pens etc.

Thanks to the efforts of their partners, they were able to double that of Phase 1 and now are moving to Phase 3.

The Fellowship was delighted to receive a call on 01 March advising that Scouts in Hertfordshire, England, had held a collection and were busy sorting and boxing the toys, exceeding 90 boxes so they will be discussing now with their partners whether they can have a one off collection and shipment of these toys prior to May 2014, the closing date for Phase 3. Hertfordshire Scouts filled over 90 boxes containing 3,120 toys weighing 740 kg.
