The annual 'Bring the Toys' charity evening takes place at The Bernard Shaw, Portobello this Thursday, December 11th.

The initiative is in aid of Crumlin Children's Hospital, and aims to gather a host of toys/raise money for the children who will be spending Christmas in hospital.

To gain entry on the night, you must bring an unwrapped, non-furry toy. Alternatively, you can donate €10 on the door.

Musical entertainment on the night will be provided by the following people, who will engage in a 'Rockers vs. Ravers' DJ battle:

Gav Feeney
Jon Averill
Skinny Wolves DJs

You'll also receive a free pass to the Buraka Som Sistema gig at Twisted Pepper (Abbey Street) which kicks off later on the same night.
