V2 Radio helps collect over 2400 toys in local appeal

More than 2400 toys donated by V2 Radio listeners were collected by local charities and organisations over the Christmas period.

It followed the station’s six-week toy appeal in which local people and business’ generosity racked up over £25,000 worth of gifts for children in the community.

V2 Radio Drive Time show presenter Ian Crouch has thanked “everyone who donated, whether one or lots of toys.”

He continued, “You have made it possible for us to put smiles on the faces of children in Sussex. These families were facing a very different looking Christmas but instead the children that the charities & organisations support got to look forward to a joyous occasion.

“We would also like to thank Knight Fencing who were once again our fantastic sponsors, along with the incredible local businesses & stores who were Donation Points for us.”

Ian also shared his gratitude for the local businesses, schools & groups who organised their own collections for the Toy Appeal.
