Sarah Munro, lead trainer at Phoenix, said: "We were overwhelmed by Care Vending's generosity and knew the toys would be very gratefully received.

"Care Vending is a great support. In 2019 they funded a trip to Gulliver's Land for families and ice skating - both were incredibly popular.

"They have also supported our young adults in many ways, including the purchase of laptops to support their job skills."

Daniel said: "We are proud to support Phoenix and the fantastic young people."
