Star Radio has launched its first ever Christmas toy appeal, in aid of a Soham charity.
The radio station is appealing to residents and businesses across East Cambridgeshire to get involved by donating toys which will then be distributed to sick, disabled or disadvantaged children and their siblings in time for Christmas.
The appeal is being backed by the Liam Fairhurst Foundation.
James Woodward, managing director of Star Radio said: “We know how generous our listeners are and we hope that, as well as donating toys themselves, they’ll help us to spread the word and encourage friends and family to also buy an extra toy to give to the appeal.”
The toys should be left, unwrapped, at designated Star Radio collection points in six central locations: ASDA and Toys r Us at the Beehive Centre, in Cambridge; Tesco stores, in Newmarket Road, Cambridge, and in Milton, Newmarket and Ely; and Moons Toy Store, in Newmarket.
