A feel-good campaign to give deprived South Yorkshire kids a Christmas present has ditched the sleigh for an electric car.
Hallam FM’s Mission Christmas campaign, which is backed by The Star, has been donated a pioneering Nissan e-NV200 to make nearly 200 stops across the city.
The car will be used to collect presents for the annual campaign, which strives to ensure no child in South Yorkshire goes without a gift at Christmas.
Launched this month, the appeal encourages people to buy an extra Christmas gift that can then be given to the region’s vulnerable and deprived children.
The e-NV200 has been donated to the campaign for a month by Inmotion! – a partnership between South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive and the four South Yorkshire District Councils.
Allan Ogle, Hallam FM’s Cash for Kids charity manager, said: “The e-NV200 will be a massive boost to the campaign and is essential for visiting the drop-off points.
“Its environmental compatibility fits in perfectly with our ethical fundraising practice and its technology makes it perfect for the stop-start driving that we’ll use it for.”
