How would YOU spend £3 million?

X At Your Service

Sunday, 3 December 2023 - 33 minutes

Ramsey-based business AFD Software celebrated the Company's 40th Anniversary at their recent Annual Charity Event - and they marked the milestone by donating a total of £1million, divided between over 80 local and global charities, nominated by the staff of AFD - The Postcode People.
But there was more - a further £2.2million will be used to buy an aircraft for Mission Aviation Fellowship, the charity which works globally, transforming the lives of people living in remote and isolated communities in around 24 countries.  

On the programme this week, we hear from Mission Aviation Fellowship CEO Dominic Palmer and Joanna Roberts, Partnerships Manager with the charity, as they explain how and where they work, and how important the gift of a plane is, in developing their outreach. 

AFD Managing Director David Dorricott shares his philosophy of giving - and we hear about the challenge given to every person who attended the Charity Event!

And Richard Littledale makes a welcome return - the author and broadcaster has chosen 4 of his favourite stories,  each one about Christmas Day, and each one designed to help us see beyond the preparations and the pressures that can crowd out the real message of Christmas.  This week's story is about a Christmas tree .....

There's Advent music from Aled Jones and our usual notice board.  
Items for the notice board can be emailed - judithley@manxradio.com
