Wave 105 Cash for Kids aims to make a real difference to the lives of children and young people across the south who need a helping hand.
Everything raised in our area stays in our area, with a focus on alleviating poverty, supporting disability and improving quality of life.
The past year and a half have been challenging and we're all adapting to an ever-changing world and finding our way through. Now more than ever the families we help need us - but we can only help them if we all join together.
Your fundraising or donations will help us in various ways:
1. General grant round – to fund items that would benefit lives such as sensory books for autistic children, hoists to help disabled children into a boat so they can experience a boat ride, specially adapted bikes so two disabled children can ride side by side in a cycling group, school shoes for a boy living in poverty, dance lessons for a girl with a muscle wasting disease and so much more!
2. Basic essentials grant round – we are currently granting out £35 per child for items such as clothes, shoes, school uniform, fresh fruit, hygiene packs and pyjamas for children living in poverty.
3. Mission Christmas – presents for children who, without our help, would not have a present to open on Christmas day.
