An emotional week!

16th December 2016

It’s fair to say I’ve just finished the most emotional three weeks of the year at KL.FM!  With your help our Toy Appeal received over 1500 presents, all donated by listeners and local companies.  These presents were then distributed all over West Norfolk, Wisbech & Fakenham, the generosity of others means that complete strangers were able to make sure their children had something to open on Christmas Day.  Some families I met had it not been for the Toy Appeal wouldn’t have anything to give their children on Christmas morning.   I made the last delivery on Wednesday to Reach for a Star the local charity that makes wishes come true for children with life limiting or life threatening medical conditions, others that benefited included Social Services who received 400 presents for the children they care for, Paediatrics A&E who thanks to Swinton now have a new toy kitchen for the children to play in while waiting to be seen, looked after children in King’s Lynn & Wisbech, little ones with learning difficulties and less able children, Bridge for Hero’s and their families, Scotty’s Little Soldiers, Speeda and so many more.  

Thanks if you were part of this amazing appeal!

All of the above was finished with an amazing morning at the Town Hall.  Seven young heroes, their families and some very important invited guests joined us for the KLFM’s Young Hero’s to celebrate amazing youngsters in the area who have achieved greatness, helped others, made a difference or who simply deserved recognition for the efforts and achievements over the year.  To learn more about this and the winners just look at the Young Hero page.

It was an emotional morning and very heart-warming too.
