NEARLY 30,000 toys were donated to the 2013 Wave 105 Cash for Kids Mission Christmas toy appeal, successfully doubling last year’s total.

Schools, local businesses and Wave 105 listeners donated new unwrapped toys, which were then distributed to charitable groups, social services and women’s refuges.

The appeal was boosted by Chris Jarvis and Steve Fletcher who joined Wave 105 presenters for broadcasts at Sainsbury’s stores in Dorset, encouraging shoppers to buy an extra gift.

Wave 105 Cash for Kids charity manager Gloria Hill said: “Reaching this incredible total means that together we have managed to help even more local children and families in poverty to enjoy Christmas. We have been overwhelmed by the kindness of the people of Dorset and value their support during this busy and expensive festive period.”
