Ten things KCOM did in the community this week
KCOM has been at the heart of Hull for more than a century.
2018 was a busy year for KCOM in the community
In 2018 KCOM continued to be at the heart of Hull by supporting and volunteering in many of the city’s vibrant communities.
But do you know exactly what KCOM does to help Hull’s charities, schools, festivals and community organisations? In the 114 years since KCOM began in Hull, we’ve been at the centre of the city’s daily life – and 2018 was no exception.
Brendon Smurthwaite, KCOM’s community coordinator, said: “We love to get involved in the local community and do what we can to make Hull an even better place to live. 2018 was a busy year for us with so many activities and events to get stuck into, but when you see the positive difference a company like KCOM can make to local people it makes it all worth it.
“The next 12 months are shaping up to be just as busy, so we won’t be resting on our laurels. We’re very much looking forward to getting back out there and meeting lots of brilliant community spirited people – as well as lots of old friends – in Hull and East Yorkshire.”
Here are ten facts about what we got up to in 2018.
In December, for the eighth year running, we also helped more than 80 local disadvantaged children with our annual Christmas shoebox collection - providing toys and festive treats to Hull youngsters
