M6toll support Free Radio ‘Mission Christmas’ campaign
Midland Expressway Ltd (operators of the M6toll) have given their support to Free Radio’s, Cash for Kids, ‘Mission Christmas’ campaign by providing a donation of £500 through their Drive for Charity In the Community scheme.
The donation will be used to deliver some Christmas magic to as many local Children as possible whose families have really struggled during this challenging year.
It’s been a difficult year for so many people, and Christmas is going to be particularly
tough for many families. This sadly means there are many children who are at-risk of
having no presents to open on Christmas morning. So again, this year, Free Radio want to give Santa a helping hand and deliver some magic to as many of these children as they can.
Tom Reeves, Charity Fundraising Executive & Official Assistant Elf said “Mission Christmas aims to get gifts to those thousands of disadvantaged local children who would otherwise wake up with nothing & it simply cannot happen without the support of our local community. We are immensely grateful to Midland Expressway Ltd for their generosity in what has been a hugely troubling year for all.”
Joanne Brett, MEL Social Committee Member added: “Christmas will feel very different for everyone this year, but we want to do our bit and help make Christmas that little bit more special for local Children. This is a great campaign and we are so pleased to be able to support Free Radio, Cash for Kids with delivering Mission Christmas”.
