A KIVETON-based radio station has put smiles on the faces of poorly children.

RedRoad FM gave Easter eggs to the youngsters Rotherham Hospital after appealing to listeners of the community radio station.

Ashley Saywell and Barry Bull, presenters of Thursday nights Fab n Groovy 60s show launched an appeal for donations of Easter eggs.

Ashley, who donated the eggs dressed as a Thunderbird said the response was brilliant.

Along with Barry, who dressed as a Power Ranger, the pair delivered the Easter eggs to the children’s ward earlier this month and spent time with children, parents and hospital staff.

Barry said: “A big thank you must go to our listeners.”

The pair added: “We are community based and therefore try to add to the local community spirit wherever and whenever we can. It is hard work but extremely worthwhile.”
