The Wagga Toy Run was cancelled at the weekend because of rain but organisers have not given up. 

A large part of the fundraising is based on auctions and raffles held at the end of the toy run each year.

Organisers are holding an auction for the left over wooden toys, vouchers and furniture on December 16.

The barbecue and viewing of auction items, including timber tables, benches, dressers and toys donated by the GEO Group, will begin at 8am with the auction starting at 11am at Bike Essentials. 

Money raised will assist the Salvation Army and St Vincent de Paul buy toys to distribute.

Donations of toys are still being accepted and there are still raffle tickets for sale at Bike Essentials on Dobney Avenue.
