​LISTEN AGAIN – News In Focus “A Charity Christmas PART ONE”

LISTEN AGAIN – News In Focus “A Charity Christmas PART ONE” 

This week’s News In Focus which takes a look at all the charitable acts of local individuals and groups, is now available to hear again below.

The show is the first of two programs, which highlights those who’ve gone out of their way during the season of good will.

Featuring in part one, the likes of the Mansfield Rotary Club, whose annual sleigh pull is an ever present Christmas tradition, Jerry Green Dog Rescue, who share advice on getting a puppy for Christmas, and the Old Mansfield Library, who recently staged a unique gig to support local food-banks.

Sam Holgate-Davey from the Old Library said “we we’re able to make a really big contribution to Sherwood Forest food-bank and framework. People were really generous with what they brought and what they donated. Mansfield like anywhere in Notts or in the country, has a large number of rough sleepers, the least we can do is give them some food and some drink – it’s just what you do”

Also featuring on this week’s special, the first of two shows across the next fortnight, are the Edwinstowe Lions who have been taking Santa’s Sleigh across the area.

John Yarwood is a volunteer with the group “We’re out nearly every night, up until the 23rd I think. It’s a big commitment but it’s about enjoying it, getting the community involved with us, raising as much money as we possibly can but giving something back to the children, so they enjoy the experience with the Lions as well”

If you are, or work for, a charity wishing to get involved in future shows in 2017, please email Producer Craig Priest at or call 01623 666 020 - News In Focus returns next Thursday, with the second of two Christmas specials, including a look at our Toy Appeal for Kings Mill Children’s ward.
