RadioWest raise a tonne of Christmas cheer

Friday 13 December, 2013

Christmas is a tough time for many families and through Southern Cross Austereo’s annual campaign to raise toys and food for the Salvation Army, RadioWest’s breakfast duo Cliff and Dougie have helped their community raise some Christmas cheer

Setting up a trailer disguised as a present at a local shopping centre throughout November and December they have filled it at least 4 times over.

Dougie said: “It really just helps those families doing it tough, it’s not a hand out, it’s a hand up.”

Today the duo broadcast from Centrepoint Shopping Centre in Bunbury and last minute donations flowed in with local businesses walking up with cash or products to assist in the toy and food drive. Coles donated two pallets of cool drinks and Target donated some slow cookers, pushing the weight of donations well over a tonne.

Major Neil Dickson from the Salvation Army said: "Christmas is a time of added expense for all of us. But for those who've barely managed throughout the year to make ends meet, they find their money no longer stretches and that added expense can be too much. This year the toys will go to children whose families are either experiencing homeless or are out of work and struggling financially."
