wave105missionchristmasSainsbury’s stores in Newport and Cowes are once again supporting Wave 105’s Mission Christmas, as are JMP Partnership in Sandown.

Regional radio station Wave 105 launched its Mission Christmas Toy Appeal on 14th November to help prevent thousands of children in poverty across the South from waking up to Christmas without any presents.

To help make a disadvantaged child’s festive season a special one, Islanders can take on the role of Santa by dropping off a present at 1 of 3 collection points. Presents should be new, unwrapped and suitable for children and young people aged 0-18 years. All presents donated on the Island will stay on the Island.

  • JMP Partnership – 97-99 High Street, Sandown
  • Sainsbury’s Cowes – 129-130 High Street, Cowes
  • Sainsbury’s Newport – Foxes Road, Newport
