With the loss of Mix96, an Aylesbury based radio station that served our community brilliantly for many years, many organisations wanted to carry on the legacy of the heart-warming community spirit that the station generated through their appeals and events. Tring Radio were approached by organisations and local listeners, asking them to help support community appeals that were sadly lost when Mix96 came off air – which includes the very successful and popular Christmas Toy Appeal.
Tring Radio founder, Tim, says: ‘As a non-profit, volunteer-run local radio station, we are more than happy to support all these causes and help collectively bring everyone together, to carry things forward.’
Aylesbury Town Council alongside Red Kite Radio and Stoke Mandeville Hospital Radio joined forces with Tring Radio to form a collaborative approach to the appeal, ensuring a large area was covered to maximise the scale of the appeal and donations coming in. Everyone involved hopes to make the first Community Radio Christmas Toy Box Appeal a massive success!
We know we can make a difference, and carry on improving and enriching the lives of local people.
Don’t leave it until the last minute, Donation Stations are available now until Wednesday 16 December. Full details of how you can donate and where to find your nearest donation station can be found at tringradio.co.uk/christmas-toy-appeal-2020.
