Make a Syrian child’s day with donations of unwanted toys
10:00am Wednesday 30th October 2013 in News
EIGHT-year-old Noah Cooley’s imagination soared during a craft workshop at Oxford’s Pitt Rivers Museum.
The youngster created a plane from recycled materials at the session on Monday as part of the museum’s programme of half-term activities.
Noah said: “I liked making the plane.”
This week, visitors are also being encouraged to donate unwanted toys to the museum for Syrian refugee children, which will be given to the UN Refugee Agency.
Noah’s grandmother Jane Jones, from South Oxford, said: “I think what the museum is doing is very good.”
Toys can be donated at the museum in Parks Road until Friday.
