Key 103 presenters take to sky for charity

Key 103 presenters Mike Toolan, Chelsea Spokes, Darren Proctor and Alex James headed out across the patch in a helicopter as part of a week in which the station raised more than £84,000.

The Cash for Kids week at the Manchester-based Bauer station was raising money for CLIC Sargent.

On Friday, the breakfast duo Mike and Chelsea along with Darren and Alex visited local schools in a helicopter to appeal for donations to the appeal.

Other activities included on-air auctions, with one listener paying £20,000 for a Thomas Sabo braclet signed by the boyband One Direction.

Emma Brown Cash for Kids Charity Manager at Key 103 says: “The work CLIC Sargent does is vitally important for children suffering from cancer and their families. Treatment can often be many miles from home and can last for up to three years. The Clic Sargent team are there from diagnosis onwards and aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer, its treatment, life after treatment and in some cases bereavement. The people of Manchester are notoriously generous and they’ve shown their worth once more by helping us to raise over £84,000.”
