Radio Clyde Cash for Kids raises funds to benefit the most vulnerable children in local communities across Glasgow and the west of Scotland.  Since our first appeal, the excellent work of the charity has assisted over 1.7 million children disadvantaged through poverty, ill health, or special needs by way of family grants, special and sustainable grants and community group grants totalling in excess of £23.7 million.
We can and do make a difference to the lives of children but can only continue to do so with the support from our corporate supporters and individuals who give generously and want to help make a difference in their local communities.
