Every year 6 Towns Radio choose a charity partner to work alongside and to help promote various events and fundraisers, this usually coincides with our annual community awards evening. Unfortunately this years awards has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. We wont let that stop us helping our community though and we are delighted to announce that we have chosen 3 separate charities this year.
The charities that have been chosen are North Staffs Mind, The Samaritans and Port Vale Foundation who will each receive a cash donation of £200 and will also receive £800 worth of promotion for their events/fundraisers throughout the year.
Station manager Terry Bossons said: ‘Each year we would normally choose one charity partner to work with but as it’s a special occasion for us we made the decision to extend that this year. North Staffs Mind and The Samaritans work tirelessly all year round to ensure there’s always help for the people of Stoke-on-Trent and the Port Vale Foundation, whilst keeping the community active, have been instrumental in ensuring everyone is provided for with their food packages during the coronavirus pandemic. We can’t wait to start conversations with all three charities to see how we can work together’
