Today was my first day on the road for KL.FM's Toy Appeal and once again I was blown away by the generousity of the shoppers at Morrisons in Fakenham.
Santa, his Norfolk Green Bus and our 4x4 from Hunters Land Rover had a great day and will be out and about for the next two weeks collecting for children who will be away from their family over Christmas.
We will be delivering to Scotty's Little Soldiers, Rudham Ward and A&E at the QE and many other deserving places. For more on where to drop your toys, please click here.
Before my trip to Fakenham I was drawn to the Vancouver Quarter by the angelic voices of the Children from Greyfriar's School in King's Lynn who were perfoming carols in the cold to warm shoppers, spread some festive cheer and raise money for a former KL.FM Charity of the Month - Scotty's Little Soldiers.
Have a listen to one of their songs below!
We Wish You a Merry Christmas
Also today I would like to wish Dereham Town FC the best of luck against Norwich City FC in the Norfolk Senior Cup at Aldiss Park and Fakenham Town FC all the luck in the world with their new striker tonight who will be hunting for some much needed goals!

WOW, WHAT A DAY! My day got underway at around 6:30am with a trip to the home of the owners of Sandles Car Supermarket for a flight in their helicopter with KLFM's very own Super Trooper to the car lot for KLFM's 'Lights on, Lights off'. By 11am around 150 people had arrived in Pott Row to win a car worth £5000 and I had the job of giving it away. After 6 rounds of questions we eventually found a winner, Rowan Thaxton aged 13, who made his parents' day by collecting the keys to their new family car!
My jet set day continued with a trip back towards King's Lynn to collect my little boy for a massive suprise, I was taking him to Upton Park to watch West Ham play Derby in the Championship. It was a very long, energetic rush with the logistics of driving to the helicopter, being the man on the radio giving away a car, collecting my car and getting to London with 23,000 other people in time for the game but completely worth it just to see how excited he was about going to see the 'Hammers with Dad while my wife and daughter went 'boring' Christmas shopping.
Big thanks to Paul, everyone at Sandles, KLFM's Super Trooper and West Ham for getting 3 points and making an amazing day even greater!
It was about 10pm when I got home, completly shattered but I'd had an amazing day!

You must have heard by now, Adam & I have teamed up with Melon Aid to perfom a West Norfolk version of 'Do They Know It's Christmas'. The song is available for just £3 at the locations noted under the 'Melon Aid' tab.
We also spent a very cold Sunday recording the video on location in and around King's Lynn. The result is 5 minutes of comedy gold!
Watch, enjoy, share with friends and most importantly please buy a copy to help the North Lynn Discovery Centre.

Today I visited Howard Junior School in Gaywood to record December's 'Kidz Klues'. The children there were very excited to see me and very well behaved. They not only took me to see their chickens and their insects but also turned the tables on me and interviewed me for their podcast. You can see a video of this very soon!

You may remember that I recently appealed for some garden gnomes for a 3 year old lad whose collection was smashed on the Fairsted over Haloween. He now has to walk past the broken bits every day on the way to school. Since my appeal Dents of Hilgay have donated to the appeal and listeners to the show have also offered cash and SEVEN more gnomes!
Thanks in paticular to GRISSLES for helping me spread the word and for his efforts to put a smile on this litlte lads face.
