Free Ice Cream on Aire

96.3 Radio Aire’s official ice cream van rolled up at St James’ Hospital in Leeds recently to offer free treats to children. The exercise by the Emap station was to raise awareness of The Kids Count Trust – an appeal to buy a holiday home on the East Coast for the Leeds’ charity Candlelighters.

The 96.3 Radio Aire ice cream van has been at Crown Point Shopping Park all summer, making children smile with free prizes and games for families to enjoy. Every 100th ice-cream ordered is given free to the customer by Julie, ‘the ice-cream lady’. Throughout August, Julie has also been visiting work places and people who need a treat with free ice creams. Dawn Nicks, who was at St James’ Hospital yesterday said ‘My granddaughter is being treated on the Oncology ward and I want to say a big thank you for bringing a smile to her face.’

The Kids Count Trust was officially launched last month to support children across West Yorkshire who suffer from abuse, neglect, disability, poverty, distress or simply those who need extra care and guidance.

Alexis Thompson, Regional Managing Director for 96.3 Radio Aire and Emap Yorkshire said: "The Kids Count Trust relies on the generosity of listeners; local companies and the general public, the holiday home will provide a break for children and their families away from the stresses of hospital routine."
