Wave 105’s charity Cash for Kids is thrilled to announce that more than 5,000 eggs were donated to its annual Easter egg appeal.

Charity supporters and listeners to the radio station were encouraged to purchase an extra egg this Easter, and take them to various drop-off points across the south. The eggs were then distributed to disadvantaged children who wouldn’t normally receive a treat at Easter.

Wave 105 Cash for Kids charity manager, Gloria Hill, said: “We’re thrilled to have reached our target of 5,000 Easter eggs. We couldn’t have done this without the support of some extremely generous individuals, schools as well as a host of local businesses.

“We would also like to extend our thanks to our superb 2015 sponsor, Partridge of Hampshire BMW, who have helped to make this year a huge success, all of our wonderful drop-off points who contributed to making the appeal so effective, as well as Pickfords who helped us to sort the chocolate treats.”

Laura Hotton, marketing executive at Partridge of Hampshire BMW, said; “We’re delighted to have sponsored this years’ Cash for Kids Easter egg appeal. Thank you to those that got involved to help make this year the best yet – such an overwhelming response from people across the region.”

Wave 105 Cash for Kids supports local children, under the age of 18 who are financially, socially, emotionally or physically disadvantaged. Since its launch in November 2008, the charity has helped to raise over one million pounds.
