timto – there’s more to . . .

Working with timto gives our customers the chance to donate to a charity of their choice! Please read on to see how timto can help you with your Critterish Allsorts booking.

timto works with a host of well-known children’s retailers to make children’s birthday wishes come true. It ensures that every penny spent is put to good use rather than money being potentially spent on duplicated or unused items. The celebrating family decide what proportion of the total contributions to donate, which means that each party fundraises £5 or more for their chosen charity.

They have now extended their range of services to include other gift ideas for children, with a school service too. Critterish Allsorts are very proud to have made this association and look forward to hearing how our customers have used their services successfully and raised money for their chosen charity.
