Tree-mendous Christmas Celebrations

Metro Radio’s Cash for Kid’s invite people from across the region to an evening of Christmas celebrations at their Christmas Family Festival event to raise funds for Calvert Trust Kielder.

Christmas Family Festival 

To start the celebrations, Metro Radio breakfast presenters Steve & Karen will switch on the lights on an enormous Christmas tree from Kielder Forest which has been donated by Elveden Estates.

The event which is free to attend will take place on Thursday 28 November from 5.30pm at Hilton Newcastle Gateshead.  There will be carol singing and entertainment, a Christmas Market, to stock up on those festive goodies,  Santa’s Grotto for the kids and complimentary mulled wine and mince pies for the grown ups.

Don’t miss the chance to win two tickets to a concert of the winner’s choice at Metro Radio Arena Newcastle, dinner bed and breakfast at Hilton Newcastle Gateshead and an executive car to and from the venue.

Metro Radio’s Cash for Kids are donating all proceeds from the event to Calvert Trust Kielder where the funds will be used to help children with disabilities to experience life changing outdoor adventure at their centre located in Kielder Water & Forest Park.

Hazel Ditchburn, Calvert Trust Kielder said:

“We are incredibly grateful to Metro Radio’s Cash for Kids for their support and generosity.  I am looking forward to what promises to be a very special event.”

Steve & Karen are encouraging people who attend to bring along a new and unwrapped gift for a child aged from birth to 18 for their Mission Christmas Appeal to support children across the region who might otherwise not receive a gift this Christmas.
