KL.FM donates toys to the Lake District

Toys from West Norfolk made their way to Cumbria and Lancaster thanks to KL.FM.

A Land Rover packed with toys headed north to help cheer-up those clearing-up after rivers burst their banks, depositing water and mud in homes and businesses.

KL.FM wanted to do a little to help children who have been forced from their homes, or to replace Christmas presents destroyed by the water.

The West Norfolk radio station has been appealing for toys for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn, the Roxburgh Children’s Centre, Scotty’s Little Soldiers, the Oasis in Wisbech, Vancouver Children’s Centre and Rocco’s Legacy.

But this week staff decided to split the donations with Lakeland Radio and The Bay who have been running their own Toy Appeal.

Hometime presenter “Posh” Charles Dennett took the toys to Lancaster.

KL.FM managing director Darren Taylor said: “Our listeners have been incredibly generous this year and the whole team at KL.FM agree this a lovely gesture and a little something we can do to send love and best wishes from West Norfolk to the people up there and, most especially of course, the children.”

Phil Rodgers of Lakeland Radio said: “We’ve been really touched that the community in West Norfolk wants to help out. We’ll make sure that the toys all go to a good home.”
