Our Gifts For Christmas 2014 appeal is now underway and we have been overwhelmed by the help given by our listeners.
Many donations of toys and cash have come flooding into the York Road studios since the launch.
Jason Anderson, Managing Director of 102.4 Radio Hartlepool, said "I knew that the townsfolk are generous but even I am surprised at the amount of gifts donated so far. But we want to reach out to as many disadvantaged children as possible this year, so please keep them coming".
Listeners are asked to drop off any new, unopened and unwrapped presents, suitable for boys or girls, either at Radio Hartlepool in York Road (opposite Kwik Fit/Carlton Bingo) or the Sainsbury's store at Middle Warren.
Recent visitors to the station, The Jar Family heard about our appeal and instantly donated £100 for us to buy some toys.
