Christmas is well and truly over and we’re almost finally through the long months of January and February, but one local garage hasn’t been forgotten for their efforts over the festive period.
Throughout November and December Trax FM asked their listener’s to buy an extra gift while doing their Christmas shopping to make sure every child in Doncaster and Bassetlaw had a present to open on Christmas day morning.
Drop off points were Lakeside Village, Doncaster and Priory Shopping Centre, Worksop and listener’s could also drop their toys and gifts off at The Legacy Centre, Doncaster towards the end of December.
Every year Trax FM and Doncaster Children's Services Trust are overwhelmed by the generosity of the people of Doncaster and Bassetlaw. Mountains of items from books, jigsaws, teddys, gift sets and more.
The generosity doesn’t just stop at the gift giving; the gifts need to be collected and transported to the children somehow. That’s where Stadium Garage comes in…
This is the fourth appeal Stadium Garage have supplied the official Toy Appeal van. The garage also provide the vinyl and it is used as a form of advertising during the campaign, out collecting donations and finally delivering every item at the end.
“As a local business we believe in using local companies and supporting our community. The Trax FM Toy and Gift Appeal is a team effort with local companies covering all costs, so every donation goes 100% to supporting local children.
This year was the first year I joined the Trax FM team driving the van to collect from local businesses. The generosity of everyone we visited was genuinely overwhelming. We hope to continue supporting this fantastic appeal along with our network of local customers and businesses.”
