Isle of Wight Radio Toy Appeal 2023
Spreading festive cheer to thousands of Island children, this year’s official Isle of Wight Radio Christmas Toy Appeal runs from the 6th of November until December 9th.
Since its inception over ten years ago, over 34,000 gifts have been donated to less-fortunate children by kind-hearted listeners.
Young carers, children in hospital, families challenged by poverty and youngsters in care are among those who have benefited from the appeal. Donations are more vital than ever before in these challenging times and cost of living crisis, all donations are so greatfully recieved.
As in previous years, we have drop-off points across the Isle of Wight, including the Isle of Wight Radio office.
Here’s where you can help:
You can donate a NEW toy or gift suitable for a child aged 0-16 via an official drop-off point until December 9th.
We’re asking you to donate new toys unwrapped and to the value of £10.
We know that's a big ask for some people, so we're hoping you might sign up to do a fundraiser and raise some money instead and then buy toys to donate!
