A BBC RADIO 4 APPEAL
We nearly fell off our seats when we were told we had been selected for a BBC Radio 4 Appeal in 2019.
Then we really did fall off our seats in March 2020 when YOU raised £42,895 through the campaign.
Hundreds of people across the country donated to Legs4Africa’s first ever BBC Radio 4 Appeal, and raised enough to get over 1,000 legs to people who need them in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Huge thanks are owed to all you Leg-loving supporters who backed the campaign, Alex Brooker and everyone at the BBC. What a bloomin’ success. Find out more about the appeal below.
What is the Radio 4 Appeal?
The BBC Radio 4 Appeal is a weekly 3 minute programme highlighting the work of a charity and appealing for donations to support its activities. The appeal is a fantastic way for Legs4Africa to engage with the BBC’s audience and a huge opportunity for such a small charity.
Our appeal centred around the story of Alieu Touray. You can find out more about him below.

“I was very lucky to get all my legs from the NHS, I always had that care – people in Africa don’t have that necessarily. Legs4Africa do incredible work and give people the opportunity to be mobile and live independent lives.”Alex Brooker - Comedian, TV personality
