The Rossendale Radio Christmas Toy and Gift Appeal 2020
Rossendale Radio today launched it's annual Christmas appeal to help those in need at this time.
The ROSSENDALE RADIO CHRISTMAS TOY & GIFT APPEAL in association with The Rossendale Community Support Network and Kids In Rossendale will collect Toys & Gifts at a number of collection points around The Valley. (see below) It is hoped all the Valleys Supermarkets and other outlets will join the appeal and have collection points in their stores.
The appeal launched 5th October with a closing date of 13th December.
Toys and gifts collected will then be distributed among people referred by organisations such as CAB, Social Services and other Valley Charities.
Rossendale Radio organisers stated “Because of Covid 19, many people in The Valley will be facing hardship at Christmas and this is one way the Community station can help to support them. We know the good Valley people are always generous and happy to help those less fortunate”
