The soundtrack to Christmas is here and this year it’s raising funds for Focus Ireland.

Like the imagined sound of footsteps on the roof, the excitement is off the charts once I hear Christmas FM! And until December 26th, the station is live to bring us the magic of Christmas with all of the cheerful tunes we know and love, mixed with some lesser known gems and a sprinkling of new Christmas music from Ireland and around the world.

This time of year is all about people coming together and getting into the spirit of giving, which is exactly what Christmas FM is all about. This year, the station will be raising funds for Focus Ireland. Homelessness in Ireland has increased dramatically in recent times and the charity is aiming to help 300 families out of this stressful and difficult situation this year.

To ensure that all money raised goes directly to the charity, the station is being sponsored by An Post, Cadbury and Tesco Ireland, while an almost 100 strong team of volunteers will keep the nation (and the world) entertained. Live programmes will run from 7am to midnight every day and continuous Christmas music will play throughout the night if you can’t sleep with the excitement!
