NEW: Hidden Events
We know that members of Hidden love living on our Island and take great pride in our community. We want our membership to be a force for good so there are a range of ways in which we join together to give back.
Here, you'll find a number of projects we're currently running as part of that pledge, and any help you can offer would be amazing. This is what we've got going on over the next few months:
Isle Of Wight Radio's Toy Appeal 2021
Every Christmas, Isle Of Wight Radio collects toys and gifts for underprivileged children living right here on the Island.
And this year we're going to need your help more than ever.
Since its inception over ten years ago, around 25,000 gifts have been donated to less-fortunate children, by kind-hearted Islanders.
Our appeal returns very soon, so if you or your workplace would get involved, fill in our quick registration form to get the latest updates on how you can help:
Ten Thousand Tins
Over the last couple of years, our sister station in Sussex, More Radio, has looked to collect Ten Thousand Tins of food annually for food banks and charities across the county.
It's been a challenging couple of years for all of us, but for some families the Coronavirus pandemic has had a devastating impact. Our annual Ten Thousand Tins campaign has been one way in which we've tried to help those families.
Now, we're bringing Ten Thousand tins to the Island and we need your help!

Child Of Wight Awards
It's often said that children are our future, but there are also some amazing children doing incredible things on the Island right now.
The Covid-19 pandemic was difficult for everyone, but not least our children. Throughout, children across the Isle Of Wight showed huge resilience despite having their daily routines upset, being unable to see friends and family, and having to continue with school work form home.
Some have continued to go above and beyond, acting as young carers, or raising money for good causes throughout these times of crisis.
We want to recognise these very special young people - the achievers, the fundraisers, the carers and the courageous.
Nominations for this year's awards, which raises donations for children's charities across the Island, will be open soon - keep checking for more details!
