As the festive season unfolds, Sussex Transport is proud to be a sponsor of More Radio’s Toy Appeal 2023, an initiative that has become a beacon of hope and joy for many across Sussex. Last year, thanks to the incredible generosity of our community, over 8,000 children received Christmas presents through this appeal. This year, the aim is to replicate and even exceed that success.
The Need for Generosity: In a shocking revelation, around one in three children in Sussex will be experiencing poverty this Christmas. The ongoing cost of living crisis has exacerbated the situation, with more families struggling to make ends meet. Astonishingly, one in five families relying on food banks are working families. In this context, the Toy Appeal’s mission to bring a little festive cheer to those less fortunate is more critical than ever.
Call for Donations: The appeal is seeking new, unwrapped toys and games for children and teenagers, with the aim of catering to a diverse age range from 0 to 18 years. By collaborating with various charities and organizations across East and West Sussex, including food banks, domestic abuse refuges, and children’s hospices, More Radio ensures that donations reach the children who need them the most.
How to Participate: The Toy Appeal this year runs from Monday, November 6th, to Sunday, December 10th. We encourage everyone in our community to contribute to this noble cause. Your donation can make the difference between a bleak winter and a joyous Christmas for a child.
A Community Effort: At Sussex Transport, we believe in the power of community and the spirit of giving. Being part of this initiative aligns with our core values of empathy, community service, and kindness. We are honoured to contribute to the Toy Appeal and humbled by the chance to bring smiles to so many faces this Christmas.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to More Radio for spearheading this initiative and to every individual and organization participating in the Toy Appeal. Together, we can make this Christmas a memorable one for every child in Sussex. Let’s spread the joy and warmth of the holiday season to every corner of our community.
