OPERATION SANTA 2021
This year is the 17th year of our annual Christmas Appeal,'Operation Santa'.
Back in 2004, Radio Mercury started a campaign live on-air to support Crawley Open House provide a 3-course Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings for those suffering the effects of homelessness and social exclusion.
Today, 'Operation Santa' has grown in to one of our biggest charity appeals, and we can't do it without you!
There are many ways you can get involved:
You could get involved by holding a virtual fundraising event or something safe at home or work - anything to raise funds for the homeless and disadvantaged. Dress Down Day, a Raffle, Sponsored event - anything you like!
You could collect a much needed item each day up to Christmas with the 'Operation Santa Reverse Calendar' for full details, click here.
