The generosity of customers shopping at The Entertainer’s toy shops never ceases to amaze us, with their donations adding up to an incredible £400,000 to date. In fact in the last six months alone they’ve donated their spare change via Pennies more than 250,000 times.
This money has helped to improve the lives of children in hospitals across Britain. It costs £500 to provide children undergoing chemotherapy a range of craft materials to make sure they can still enjoying being children, even after hours spent in hospital. Customers at The Entertainer raise almost twice that in a regular week and donations during the festive period are even higher.
As a thank you for continually raising great sums for charity, The Entertainer has given us a great set of toys to win, just in time for Christmas! The prize includes a Winx Club Believix Doll, a Littlest Pet Shop Party Cake Clubhouse set, and a Giant Fire Breathing Toothless the Dragon. To be in with a chance of winning all three have a go at answering the question below.
