The Volkswagen Division of Sytner Group is again proud to play its part in Radio Aire's Mission Christmas 2017

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


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:

  • Harrogate
  • Leeds
  • Skipton
  • Warrington

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.

  • If you would like to support Mission Christmas, the Campaign runs from 13th November through to 17th December
  • 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)

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.
