The Bucks Radio Toy Appeal is over, and we want to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who has donated.
We've collected a fantastic amount of toys, games and gifts, every one of which will go to a disadvantaged child in Bucks this Christmas. Some of those who will receive your presents will be spending the holiday period in hospital. Others in care, away from their families. Some are terminally ill, while many will make a full recovery. But every child that gets a gift will appreciate the extra love shown by you. We've been able to give more gifts than each charity requested, so it's been a magnificent first Toy Appeal for us, and that's down to you.
You can see some of the pictures below, and the charities benefiting from your donations. You can also find out more about, and support, the businesses who acted as official Collection Points.
The Bucks Radio Toy Appeal was supported by Aylesbury Waterside Theatre.
