Secret Santa Delivers!
Best day of the Year today!, the day we get to give out the gifts that were so generously donated to our Secret Santa Appeal. First stop was Ty Findlay in Swansea's High Street. This incredible NSPCC facility looks after vulnerable children of all ages and are always extremely pleased to see us with gifts for their deserving kids.

Stop 2 was to the Barnados home in Neath. Wow, what a welcome we had here! They had a last minute problem getting Christmas presents for their many children this year so called us on the off-chance after hearing the appeal on air. We were delighted to be able to help these incredible people make their kids Christmas just a little bit more normal.

Then we went to another new recipient with a delivery of some of the food bank appeal and took along some toys too. It was the Spark project in Blaenymaes, where we heard about the incredible work the staff do there to support families in the area with a multitude of complex issues.
All in all a very emotional and worthwhile day! Thanks to all that donated and helped make this our most successful year to date. Off tomorrow to Morriston Hospital to do Phil Hoyles show live from Oakwood Childrens Ward and the burns Unit.
