For the 13th year, students, school staff, parents and others at Fraser Heights Secondary school have hand-crafted wooden riding toys for the Surrey Christmas Bureau to distribute to families in need this Christmas.

This year, a record 50 rocking toys – 25  dinosaurs and 25 airplanes – were been built, sanded, painted and decorated.

In addition, all materials for the toys were donated by local businesses, including Home Depot, Country Lumber Langley, NorthCoast Building Products Ltd., Raider Hansen, BC Fasteners 2000 and Langley Decorating Centre.

Fraser Heights Career Education teacher Martin Lim, together with his wife, Cambridge Elementary teacher Shelagh Lim, started the toy project that has become a school tradition.
