Let the children play


Satan’s Little Helper is a playful character, so he jumped at the chance to help Rangiora Toy Library (RTL) in its mission to improve children’s education through play – by providing $480 in HELL vouchers.

Half that amount in dollars was needed for RTL to reach its target to buy new shelves and improve the centre’s limited space. “We sold the vouchers at half price and they proved wildly popular,” says RTL vice president and secretary Lizzy Anderson. “We could have sold three times as many!” Established more than 20 years ago, the community-run RTL is funded through a combination of subscription fees, donations, grants, and fundraisers. Lizzy says that everyone involved is very thankful for HELL’s support. “We’ve got the shelves installed now. They’ve made a significant difference to the library, because now we can safely store our larger toys and there’s also more space for the children to play. “Not all families have access to toys at home; we’re an affordable alternative with more than 1,000 different items available to our members.”
