The Volkswagen Division of Sytner Group is proud to play its part in Radio Aire's Mission Christmas

We are delighted to announce that we will be playing a leading role in helping Radio Aire's Cash For Kids Mission Christmas campaign


In 2013, every Sytner employee was awarded one paid day out of the business to focus on helping out in the local community or supporting a charitable initiative.

Our "Giving Back" scheme is our way of giving something back to the communities where our customers live and work.

So, this year, each of Sytner's four major Volkswagen sites in Harrogate, Huddersfield, Leeds and Skipton, will be supporting Radio Aire's Mission Christmas Campaign, acting as drop-off points for 'extra' gifts.

It’s hard to understand that thousands of local children between the ago of 0 -18 years, live in real deprivation and are at risk of waking up on Christmas morning to nothing. The aim of this campaign is to persuade both staff the community to purchase an 'extra' gift as part of their Christmas shopping. The gifts will go to children living in real poverty, enabling them to enjoy a real Christmas.

The gifts will then be sorted at the Radio Aire sorting office with the help of staff members from Sytner, who have been authorised to take time from work to devote to this cause. Additional fundraising events will also be continuing throughout the campaign at each of our sites.

Meanwhile, our Senior Managers from VW, SEAT and TPS will also be donating their time and transport ensuring gifts are collected and distributed in time for delivery on Christmas Day.

  • If you would like to support Mission Christmas, the Campaign runs from 16th November through to 18th December 2015
  • Gifts do not need to be wrapped, but they do need to be new please.
  • Gifts can be donated for any age (0-18), boy or girl
  • Alternatively, cash donations can be made via text, directly to Radio Aire (details listed opposite)

Drop off points

    With the help of our staff, customers and friends, we look forward to making this a Happy Christmas for many more children, this year.
