This Christmas we’re delighted to be supporting Cash for Kids and the Mission Christmas charity appeal for the second year running.
There are 22,522 children who are likely to wake up without a present on Christmas morning, and that’s just in Leeds, which is truly heart-breaking.
So, instead of sending corporate cards and pressies, we’ve made a generous donation to the appeal, which is supported by Bauer Radio’s regional stations – so in Leeds that’s Radio Aire FM. The team are collecting unwrapped presents suitable for 0 to 18 year olds as well as cash to buy presents that will be spent supporting local jobs at Crown Point Retail Park.
It seems we’re in good company too, after Rio Ferdinand donated a cool half a million to the Manchester arm of the appeal, which you can read about here - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4036426/Ex-England-defender-Rio-Ferdinand-shocks-charity-donating-500-000-toys-needy-children-Christmas.html
