Festive Food & Toy Appeal


This year Big Fm and Big Radio 2 are launching a Festive Food and Toy appeal to aid those in our community that aren’t as fortunate as ourselves.

We are looking to make up care packages for families and individuals who have difficulty in making ends meet over the festive period.

For the Children of these families and those in the various children homes in the area, we would like to show what a big hearted community we are. If you would like to donate a toy or gift to these children, we only ask that they are wrapped with a label on stating wether its for a boy or girl and age range, e.g. Boy 7-9Years or even gift vouchers from any of the supermarkets or toy stores, they don’t have to be big amounts, just remember anything is probably better than what they may receive for Christmas.

For the Food appeal we are looking for donations of staple foods that have long shelf lives or tinned foods, eg, pasta, tins of vegetables, meat or fish, Sugar, uht milks, and other foods that would take the strain off the budget of those people that have little or nothing.

So if you are shopping and can think of something that you would think may make someones Christmas that little bit better, please throw it in your basket and drop it of at one of the drop off points that will be listed in this page.

If you would like to become involved in this appeal, please do get in contact with the staff at the studio. you may have an hour to sort goods that have been donated, or have a public accessible area which could be a drop off point, or maybe know some businesses that would like to become involved, all assistance will be welcome.

The studio at Calle Blanca 1, Ciudad Quesada is the first drop off point and the opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm and Saturday 9am to 2pm.

We also hope to hold a festive market on the large terrace at Big Fm Studios in the run up to Christmas. All stalls that would like to be involved can make a donation to this appeal but spaces will be limited so please contact us as soon as possible.

For more information please email info@bigfm.org or call the studio on 965020265
