    Default Caithness Fm Toy Appeal

    Caithness FM are once again running a toy appeal for less fortunate children in Caithness. New, unwrapped toys can be delivered to our studio in Neil Gunn Drive, Thurso any evening between 7-12pm.

    This year, toys can also be delivered to the Somerfield stores in both Wick and Thurso or if you'll be in Thurso on 3rd Dec for the fun day why not visit CFM outside McAllans shop and deliver your present in person - every little can make a big difference.

    Every toy donated will be distributed to a child in Caithness.

    Thank you

    Great to see that CFM are running this again this year!

    Can anyone tell me the age groups that are being catered for so that I can buy something appropriate.

    Was wondering if perhaps a Woolies Token or some such token would be acceptable for older children?

    Best of luck with your appeal!!

    we take donations for all ages of children, older children are some times forgotten about and a voucher or perhaps toiletries for teenage girls etc would be most welcome

    thank you for your interest

    we'll be collecting in the boxes on 16th Dec so that they can be delivered to the social work department in Wick in time for their staff to distribute them

    I know this is maybe not the correct place to ask this - but why is the reception on MFR during the day so erratic? Sometimes there is a lot of interference.

    It is OK at night though when CFM is on.

    Just to clarify things - MFR and CFM broadcast on the same frequency but using different equipment, their signal is nothing to do with CFM but I can tell you that about two weeks ago their receiver at the mast broke down, as a temporary measure they have put in a replacement receiver however this one is not specifically for that location and has a wider band width and is consequently picking up a lot of interference from other equipment on the mast. Unfortunately their signal will continue to be of poorer quality until they can get the proper receiver repaired/replaced - these machines need to be specially made and it can take time but they do hope it will not be much longer.

    we are told that teenagers are most likely to be forgotten about so perhaps a gift suitable for teenage boys would be a good idea. thanks for your interest

    This is a great appeal, so worth a discreet bump I feel...
    I donated at BT, there wasn't a lot in the box but there's still time people!

    thanks for the reminder to everyone viva dive - we should however point out that the collection box at BT is for employees only, members of the public wishing to donate can visit either the Caithness FM studio or the Somerfield stores in Wick and Thurso

    collection points at both Somerfield shops and of course the CFM studio. There is also a box at BT for employees
