Toys for Treatment 2013

‘Tis truly the season for giving!

Last Christmas, Croydon Chiropractic Centre’s generous patients brought our annual Toys for Treatmentcharity to life for its 23rd year.

November and December saw an invasion of gifts under the clinic Christmas tree, as patients dropped off toys for local children in need.

On Friday, December 6 – our Toys for Treatment day – the Christmas spirit continued to flourish with patients exchanging toys for treatments. Our waiting room was overflowing with trucks, teddy bears, basketballs and Barbie dolls – to name a few. There was hardly any space for the rest of us!

A few wonderful people donated money to go towards purchasing food and other basic necessities for struggling families in the area.

On December 13, toys and cash donations were collected by Major Stephen Black of the Salvation Army and distributed as part of their annual Christmas Appeal.

In total, we raised 157 toys and $240 – an outstanding success for everyone involved.

Croydon Chiropractic Centre owner, Dr Robert Clugston, says it has been “another rewarding year” for the charity.

“I don’t see it as donating ‘just a toy’ – or money – at Christmas. It’s giving a moment of happiness to families, where happiness can be all too rare.”

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all our terrific patients at Croydon Chiropractic Centre for bringing Toys for Treatment to life once more. Because of your generosity, a bit of joy and hope was given to those who needed some extra support during the holiday season.
