Ace Cafe Chrsitmas Toy Run and Annual Christmas Carol Service to go ahead this December


As a response to COVID-19, and aware that many families with children need help today, the cafe’s annual Christmas Toy Run is leaving the Ace at 10.30 am on Sunday 19th December, to deliver toys to charities helping children and families most in need. The charities include:

  • Sufra – London NW10 0PW
  • The Toy Project – London N19 5QU
  • Brent Civic Centre – Wembley HA9 0FJ

These charities have delivered toys to families living in hostels during lockdown, children with blood disorders shielding at home and to hospitals for presents for the children of all NHS workers.

Ace Cafe patrons have always shown huge generosity over the years in respect of donating toys for children in hospitals over the Christmas period, and we are sure this will continue to be the case in 2021.

As well as being grateful for anything that you’d like to donate for ages 3- 11, the toys always asked for are:

  • LEGO sets
  • Arts and crafts sets
  • Barbies
  • Spider-Man toys
  • Cars and planes

Please bring gifts unwrapped. Also, because of allergies, advice is against stuffed toys and sweets – the charity volunteer staff however may appreciate some sweet treats!

On returning to the cafe, there will be prizes for the “Best Dressed Bike” and the “Best Dressed Rider” – and a hot cuppa.

On the morning of the run, all elves, reindeer, Santa’s, snowmen and pixies etc. are asked to please check-in at the cafe with “Toy Run Ron”, who once again is kindly looking after the logistics involved with this special occasion.
