We'd like to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who has joined in our campaign to collect gifts for Metro Radio's Cash for Kids 'Mission Christmas' appeal. With contributions from staff, customers, clients, suppliers and other local businesses, Andrew James has managed to build a huge pile of presents totalling over 200 items. Our efforts have helped Cash for Kids not only reach but exceed their target for gifts, and now over 45,000 underprivileged children in the North East will have a present to open on Christmas day.
On Tuesday 20th December, the charity came to collect the presents from our warehouse at Fox Cover Enterprise Park in Seaham. Our director Andrew and charity committee chairperson Marie were joined by the Mayor of Seaham Sue Morrison and local radio legend Alan Robson, who helped us pack the gifts into the Cash for Kids van - and even santa turned up to help give the gifts a great send off!
