As we welcome the return of Radio Aire's Mission Christmas Campaign, several of our Volkswagen sites in Yorkshire, will be supporting the event, 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 our sites in:
Meanwhile, our TPS sites will also be donating their time and transport ensuring gifts are collected and distributed in time for delivery on Christmas Day.
With the help of our staff, customers and friends, we look forward to making this another very Happy Christmas for many more children, this year.
Your fundraising is so vital and so much appreciated to help keep the magic of Christmas alive for thousands of needy children in West Yorkshire. The age range Radio Aire always run short of gifts for are babies and teenagers. The type of gifts ideal for these categories are:
|Age Range...........................||Gift Idea|
|Babies||Babygrows, bibs, socks, baby wipes, teething rings|
|Teenagers||Toiletry gifts sets like lynx, impulse, Adidas, David Beckham. Make up, nail polish. Hats, gloves & scarves. Board games (anything pre technology as the
children we support are unlikely to have access to the internet).
