Time 107.5 FM has again launched its popular campaign to help give underprivileged children in its area a special gift for Christmas.
Now in its 15th year, Give a Child a Christmas is hugely popular and very simple.
We ask people to buy an extra gift when they are out shopping, bring it to us at The Liberty Shopping Centre and we do the rest. They don’t even need to be wrapped.
Time 107.5 has around 3,000 children to find presents for in this year and they range in age from newborn babies to young adults of 17-18 who have had a difficult life for one reason or another.
We work with charities in Havering, Barking, Dagenham, Redbridge and Thurrock to identify people that need help and every year we find there seems to be more and more so this year we need more toys than ever.
Station Manager, Lorna Waters, said: “This is one of our favorite times of the year at Time 107.5. It is always so heartwarming that our listeners are so generous in donating so many toys and gifts. Over the years, we have helped thousands of children to wake up on Christmas Day with a big smile on their faces and that is why we continue to do Give a Child a Christmas each year.
“People can bring the toys to our studios in The Liberty Shopping Centre in Romford, or take them to our sponsor, GBP Estates. They have been great and have helped us over the past three years by reaching out to all their contacts, delivering leaflets and also allowing people to drop off toys to their office in Victoria Road, Romford. It’s convenient for people there because they can park outside.”
Time 107.5 is collecting toys until Monday, 16 December. There is no need to wrap them as it makes it easier for gifts to be identified and distributed to the perfect child.
For more information or to help us with this campaign please contact Gabby on 01708 766375.

This is the amazing Richelle who has decided to help us raise money for St Francis hospice by having her Head shaved; yes that’s right Richelle will very bravely have her wonderful red hair shaved off all in aid of our £50 challenge to help raise money for the hospice.
We asked Richelle why she was willing to do this and here is what she said,
” I’ve had people very close to me all of all ages battle, and still battle cancer, and I have realised how I have taken good health for granted. Sadly, a much loved and adored cousin lost her fight to the dreadful disease. Denise was the life and soul of any party, made you feel like you were special and was loved by everyone who knew her. It was a great shock when she became ill out of the blue and I know that the care that the local St Francis Hospice gave not only to Denise but her closest family was appreciated and gave everyone reassurance at that tragic time. Although it’s been a few short years since Denise passed I know we all think of her with fondness and miss her at family parties. We all have great memories of our time with our loved ones and I feel that raising much needed funds to help this amazing work that St Francis do will help those in need in the future.”
Richelle will be having her head shaved at our studios on Monday 4th of March at 4pm. Show some support and donate what you can on our Just Giving Page.

Then we will make sure the gift goes to an underprivileged child in our area.
There’s no need to wrap the toys. In fact the agencies we work with do not accept them wrapped so leave that to them.
We need your donations by Monday, 17 December so we have time to get them out to everyone.
