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.




It's not long to go till we ask for YOUR help for our GIFTS FOR CHRISTMAS APPEAL 2015

Times are hard in and around Hartlepool and there will be thousands of children going without presents this year.

Radio Hartlepool will be asking our listeners to help prevent this by collecting as many new children's gfts as possible.

Watch this space!



It's your chance to see the arrival of Santa Claus to Middleton Grange Shopping Centre on Sunday 22nd November.

The fun starts at 11am with Jason Anderson and Jazzy Charters hosting the big day.

There will be musical entertainment from Red Dreams, bagpipes, and festive characters popping up throughout the day.

Plus of course the opening of Santa's grotto!

So join your truly local station, Radio Hartlepool with some festive cheer.

The fundraising continues to remember Jacob Jenkins, who died recently.

Meanwhile Ben Picken has also set up a fundraising page which has already raised over £20,000 in one month.
