NEWS IN FOCUS EXTRA CONTENT | Broadcast Fiona Phillips Praises Local Charity Volunteers 

Broadcaster and TV Presenter Fiona Phillips has heaped praised on volunteers who give their time to support local charities.

Fiona is backing the launch of a new social media campaign “Local Charities Day” which looks to make people more socially aware of local, smaller charities, after a study revealed that only two in five people give to a cause on their doorstep, compared to a more well-known national charity.

The broadcaster who is a patron of the People’s Post Code Lottery, said “volunteers should shout today and let people know what you’re doing – you really deserve the recognition because there are people in the local community who couldn’t have the lives that they lead without you”

Mansfield 103.2 proudly supports local charities with our weekly News In Focus program, which during the series so far has shone the spotlight on a number of local charities and community groups, as well as those who work hard to give something back.

And if you are a charity or group that would like to feature in a future News In Focus program, then contact program producer Craig Priest via email craig.priest@mansfield103.co.uk or call 01623 666 020
