Eagle Radio is bringing back its annual Christmas Toy Appeal in Surrey and Hampshire.
Eagle Radio’s Programme Director, Peter Gordon, said: “Every year I am blown away by our listeners’ heart-warming generosity.
“The gifts make such a difference to the lives of children and young people who receive them – some of whom would otherwise not know the magic and sparkle of Christmas. Sensory toys are always a good idea, puzzles, cuddly toys and activities too. We would really like to see donations for our older recipients.
“A lot of people will think of very young children when helping our appeal but we donate to young people right up to the age of 18 and they can be particularly hard to find the right gift for.”
Collection boxes are in a number of shops and businesses across the TSA.
Julie Alexandersen of Santa Fir Christmas Tree Farm and Shops, Eagle Radio’s Toy Appeal sponsor, said: “We are proud to once again support this amazing cause. It’s a great way to involve the whole community at a time when it’s easy to forget those less fortunate.”
Eagle Radio’s Managing Director, Paul Marcus, added: “I have no doubt that we will see Surrey and Hampshire’s strong community spirit once more through the Toy Appeal.
“If it was not for the help of our listeners and the local firms and sponsors who generously house a collection box, some children would wake up on Christmas day without a single present to unwrap. As in previous years we are delighted to have Santa Fir Christmas Tree Farm and Shop as the appeal sponsors.”
