Toy Appeal returns to Isle of Wight Radio
Isle of Wight Radio is once again an official supporter and media partner of the Isle of Wight Christmas Toy Appeal.
The Arqiva Station of the Year team are doing their bit to help collect and distribute over 2,000 toys to local children.
The Toy Appeal is organised by local couple Deborah & Daniel Rooke and is powered by Bestival. It is supported by official media partners Isle of Wight Radio and the Isle of Wight County Press, as well as many other local businesses and individuals.
Isle of Wight Radio Programme Director Paul Topping told RadioToday: “As the most listened to radio station on the Isle of Wight, we feel its really important to be supporting the official Isle of Wight Christmas Toy Appeal for the second year.
“Being the only local radio station, we are all about supporting the Isle of Wight, and this Toy Appeal ensures that every donation will stay here on the Island. We know from last year that all contributions made such a difference to Island children.”
Bestival founder Rob da Bank said: “You lovely bunch helped put smiles on the faces of 2,233 local Island kids in December 2012 and I feel pretty confident that, even though times are tough for everybody at the moment, we can really smash that total this year. Bring on the rolls of wrapping paper and Sellotape!”
