They say Christmas is a time for giving, and that is certainly true of all our listeners and the local community.
Radio West Norfolk’s annual Toy Appeal is up and running, and the radio station team are bowled over with everyone’s generosity despite the difficult times we are all experiencing.
We have once again joined forces with Your Local Paper and places across West Norfolk to collect gifts.
It is a project which is really important to Radio West Norfolk’s boss and breakfast show presenter Simon Rowe who has collected over £500,000 worth of gifts for this area’s less fortunate children.
All the presents you give will help bring smiles to faces this festive season as they will be given to hospitals, children’s homes, food banks, Freebridge Housing, Broadland Housing, the Salvation Army, Soctty’s Little Soldiers and children’s centres who will pass them on those who need them the most.
Here is Si passing on toys to Freebridge (pictured above)
And to Greenpark Primary and Nursery School (above)
So let’s look back at the appeal so far with these pictures
We started the week at Asda in South Wootton where Si (in his festive jacket) met the staff and collected many of your gifts.
Then we headed over to Morrisons in Fakenham to meet listeners there and collect your gifts. We just about got all in the van.
Wednesday saw a trip to Sainsbury’s on the Hardwick Industrial Estate where the trolleys of gifts were more well-stocked than the annual festive food shop
After that, it was a trip to the other side of town to Tesco’s in Gaywood.
