Sister stations from Townsville and Mackay have today joined together to bring relief to those impacted most by Cyclone Debbie.
​Grant Broadcasters radio stations from Townsville, Star 106.3 and Power 100 and from Mackay, Star 101.9 and 4MK.

The four stations met in Airlie Beach to deliver a shipping container full of food, water and toiletries to the Salvation Army for distribution among those impacted the most.

The clean up has only just begun, with thousands in the region still without electricity and many businesses closed.
Promotions and Marketing Manager for Grant Broadcasters Queensland, Cassy Small said that it was inspiring to see the stations to come together for a common cause.
"Cyclones are part of life up here, but to see the devastation and to hear the stories from our listeners we knew that we needed to do something. Listeners and businesses in Townsville, Mackay and The Whitsundays have been so generous donating items and food. Our Townsville team even drove down today with a shipping container full of food. There's a long road ahead for the people that live here and we hope this can have a small impact and bring some smiles just before Easter," she said.
