2018 Make Someone's Christmas Nominations:
14 December 2018: Archie
Tonight’s Make Someone’s Christmas call was to 7-year-old Archie Thompson in Ramsgate. Listen here to hear why Emma Stevens nominated her son's best friend Archie and what happened when Rob surprised the boys with an £100 JD voucher each, plus a brand new iPad for Archie.
Emma’s nomination about Archie Thompson, "My son (David age 7) has Type 1 diabetes and gets poorly with his blood sugars quite a bit, Archie (age 7) is his best mate. At school Archie keeps an eye on him so if he starts to get poorly he can tell the teacher fast, he keeps an eye on him the whole day and some times David's blood sugars are to high for him to go out to play or in for lunch and Archie will stay by his side even if it means missing playtime or having to go into lunch late. He is such a great friend David would be lost without him. Archie doesn't have lots and even if he hasn't got the up to date computer, games or trainers he is always grateful for what he does have. He melts my heart the way he is so caring towards my son that I think he should have a treat. It wouldn't matter what the treat was as he would be grateful for anything."
13 December 2018: Kim
Tonight’s Make Someone’s Christmas call was to Kim Berkitt. Listen here to hear why Sarah Carter nominated her friend Kim and what happened when Rob surprised her with annual, family Merlin passes.
Sarah’s nomination she submitted about Kim, " Kim is a 28-year-old mum of two young children, 4 months ago Kim was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since her diagnosis, she has been so strong.
She has raised a lot of money doing a brave the shave charity night, she raised above and beyond her target so was able to split the money between two charities and she is going on to do more charity events to raise more money.
Kim has been very strong and has coped so well with this devastating news and has made sure her children have not been affected. She is such a strong woman but I believe in the last two weeks she has been struggling and feeling a bit down.
I want to nominate Kim to show her she isn't on her own and that everyone is behind her. I think Kim would enjoy a day out with her children and family or a nice relaxing spa for after her treatment."
12 December 2018: Nikki
Tonight’s Make Someone’s Christmas call was to Nikki Moore in Kingshill. She was nominated by her friend Louise Hardy. Listen here to find out what happened when Rob called her back.
Louise said in her nomination to kmfm, “Please make her Christmas special. She is a lovely lady who always puts others first she is so generous and warm often carrying out random acts of kindness. In December she is donating her kidney to enable her neighbour to get a kidney transplant who has been very ill for two years. She works at Tunbridge Wells Hospital as a clinical support worker and is a mum of four so she is always giving to others. I would love her to have something special for her for Christmas as she does so much for others"
kmfm and Kent Reliance are sending Nikki and a plus one for an overnight spa escape to help her on her way to a full recovery.
11 December 2018: Alice
Tonight’s Make Someone’s Christmas call was to Alice in Canterbury. Her mum, Katie nominated her. Listen here to find out what happened when Rob called her back.
kmfm and Kent Reliance wanted to do something special for Alice after hearing her story, so they have kitted her out with a brand new laptop and printer so she can finish the book that she's writing.
10 December 2018: Belle
Tonight’s Make Someone’s Christmas call was to a young lady called Belle who is a young carer. Her mum, Shavonne nominated Belle. Listen here to find out what happened when Rob called her back.
