Graham Canning, Toy Trust Committee Chairman commented: “On behalf of the Toy Trust Committee I’d like to thank all our media partners for their continued, incredibly generous support of the Toy Trust Media Auction which continues to offer a very competitive and attractive selection of slots to bid on. Without our media partners we would not be able to support so many causes that directly benefit children throughout the year. This annual fundraising activity is a popular part of the industry’s calendar and one that everyone benefits from; we are all looking forward to seeing the results. My thanks go to Matt Smith of Havas Entertainment in helping us develop the auction this year and special thanks to Jeff Taylor for his continued dedication in helping us creating another superb list to bid for.”
