A big thank you is being given to listeners who have donated so generously to the county-wide campaign, with more than 1,000 toys having already been distributed - but kmfm still need more charities to donate to.

People were asked to buy an extra toy when shopping and drop it off at any of the kmfm festive light events or one of the KM Media Group offices.

Skinners Sheds also served as collection points where families could leave their presents.

Scooters, dolls, models cars and more are now being distributed to sick children, those in care and to families struggling to make ends meet.

The kmfm street team have been hand delivering to hospitals, charities and social services and will continue this week.

Toy donations have so far been made to QEQM Hospital, Canterbury Hospital, Maidstone social care, Home Start Shepway and many more.

But kmfm still need even more toy destinations due to the sheer number of gifts people have kindly donated.

If you know of any deserving charities, organisations or services which welcome donations, please let us know.

You can nominate one by filling in the online form here by 1pm tomorrow.

Drivetime presenter Rob Wills said: "Since the campaign launched at the end of November, our team have been inundated with calls, texts, social messages and hundreds of generous donations from our listeners.

"You really have gone the extra mile this year and will bring so much joy to children across Kent this Christmas, thank you so much."

kmfm Breakfast presenters Garry and Laura said: "Receiving a gift means the world to these children, the organisations and families themselves are super grateful. So thank you to all of you from all of us here at kmfm for putting a smile on children’s faces across Kent."

Thanks are given to Skinners Sheds, Big Jig Toys, The Mall and West Design for their valued contributions, and to everyone else who has helped to make this year the biggest yet.
