Wilson Field, whose Head Office is in Sheffield, have teamed up with local radio stations Hallam FM & Magic AM by sponsoring their biggest ever Christmas Appeal Charity, with the aim of giving out thousands of gifts to the most needy local children.
Between now and 24th December, listeners will be asked to get behind the appeal by leaving their gift at any Asda, Sainsbury’s Morrisons and Tesco’s store or various other drop off points throughout South Yorkshire & North Midlands listed on the website. We will be encouraging everyone to raise as much as possible for local youngsters in need. All donation will go to a child who would miss out this Christmas.
Katy Winterschladen, Charity Manager explained; “The Annual Christmas Appeal has now been operating for many years and has a fantastic heritage. Last year, thanks to our listeners and the local community we distributed thousands of pounds worth of toys and gifts to around 4,000 local deprived children.”
She went on to say; “Sadly, in this area, there are many children whose circumstances and living conditions mean that they would otherwise wake up to nothing on Christmas day. We work with local social services and organizations to ensure that, as a result of this appeal, the neediest children in our region will receive something. This year we are aiming to help over 10,000 children in and around South Yorkshire & North Midlands and need your help to keep the Christmas dream alive!”
Nick Wilson, Managing Director of Wilson Field Ltd, said; “Christmas is a time for children so we are delighted to be supporting the Cash for Kids Christmas Appeal.”
“Wilson Field was established in Sheffield almost ten years ago and we have built very strong roots in the region, so it’s fantastic to now have the opportunity to give back to such an important local charity and hopefully help brighten up Christmas for the less fortunate children in our region.”
Big John, breakfast presenter at Hallam FM’s “Big John @ Breakfast” and Ambassador of Cash for Kids Children’s Charity said; “It’s a sad fact that there will be children waking up on Christmas morning with nothing.
