We need YOUR help to make sure that children in this area have a good christmas. Children that wouldn't normally be getting anything.

We are asking our listeners to please buy and extra gift for a boy or girl when shopping. As long as it's new and unopened, you can drop them off at Radio Hartlepool on York Road, or Sainsbury's Store at Middle Warren or Dunelm at Highpoint Retail Park.

We've teamed up with Hartlepool Social Services and their children and family departments  who will distribute the gifts to appropriate families.

 Radio Hartlepool's Gifts For Christmas 2015 in association with Smith and Graham Solicitors, Sainsbury's and Dumelm.

Meanwhile here's a reminder of last year's appeal.
