STUDENTS from East London's prestigious Queen Mary university college went into their second childhood dashing round the Toy Fair grabbing as many kids' toys as they could.
The 'trolley dash' was in the last half-hour before the Fair ended when 60 volunteers from the Mile End campus raced around grabbing what they could. There was no shortage of volunteers either!
Barnardo's children's organisation was the nominated charity by the students for the sixth year.
The dash was the culmination of the charity's networking activities persuading exhibitors to donate their toys at the end of last month's Olympia trade show.
