The Isle of Wight Radio Toy Appeal is back for 2019!

We’re on a mission to make Christmas better for thousands of less fortunate Island children – and we’d love your help…

Since its inception, nine years ago, around 20,000 gifts have been donated to less-fortunate children by kind-hearted Islanders. Young carers, children in hospital, families challenged by poverty and youngsters in care are among those who have benefited from the appeal.

Isle of Wight Radio has been involved from the start and has witnessed first hand the incredible difference it has made to thousands of young lives on the Island.

We’ve had 1,800 requests for toys this year so far, which will all go to Island children.

Thank you so much for supporting the Isle of Wight Radio Christmas Toy Appeal 2019!

We’ve been in awe of your generosity this year, and we can’t wait to pass on your donations to those in need!

The Isle of Wight Radio Christmas Toy Appeal has been made possible by the kindness of plenty of Island businesses who have given their time to be official drop off points!
