For our chosen charities in 2019 we hope to raise over:
Each Cash for Kids charity was established to channel the caring of the local community into the welfare of their own youngsters. We use the power of our radio brands to deliver initiatives for sick and underprivileged children in our communities, to benefit local children and give the most disadvantaged a better and brighter future.
A Cash for Kids Representative Said:
Hallam FM’s Cash for Kids is a local charity that fundraises to help disadvantaged and disabled children across South Yorkshire, Chesterfield & Bassetlaw. We stand up proud in our local community championing the children & projects who need an extra helping hand, supporting children in our region living in difficult circumstances dealing with issues such as poverty, abuse, neglect and short life expectancy. Every penny that is raised stays locally dealing with issues on our doorstep and responding to the needs of our communities.
Inspired by the experience of Army widow Nikki Scott, the charity honours husband Corporal Lee Scott’s memory – both as a loyal soldier and a loving father – and provides a practical yet personal way for the public at large to show their appreciation for those brave individuals who make the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country.
Nikki Scott Founder of Scotty’s Said:
We’re so grateful for Incentive FM Group’s support and I know everyone at Scotty’s would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making this charity ball happen. A ball is always a fun occasion and often a memorable event. We can’t wait to see photographs… and dance moves!
