Radio Nova is helping charity ISPCC and the Irish Mirror to launch ’The Radio Nova’s Kits For Christmas campaign’.
The station’s goal is to provide sports jerseys of all types to those less fortunate throughout Dublin city, county and commuter belt and help put a smile on young children’s faces this Christmas.
The Kits for Christmas campaign is the second seasonal campaign that Radio NOVA has embarked on following its Christmas Toy Appeal in 2012.
“Most of us have a stash of well-preserved sports jerseys in the house that will never be worn again. Rather than these shirts going to waste we can get them to those who would wear them with pride”, says Joan Lea, one of the station’s breakfast hosts. “Whether it’s one replica shirt or 11 shirts that your Sports Team doesn’t need any more – we can use them to put smiles on faces!”
The station is interacting with parents, teachers and schools to collect all types of sports jerseys, which will then be delivered to the ISPCC.
Kevin Branigan CEO of Radio Nova says, “We’re very excited to launch this new initiative and delighted to be working with the ISPCC. This campaign has the potential to really make a difference to thousands of less fortunate children and put a smile on their face”.
The Radio Nova ‘Kits for Christmas’ campaign starts this week and runs throughout December on the station’s ‘Morning Glory’ breakfast show.
