This year, the station is taking the campaign up a notch by challenging each weekday show to collect a different item.
The Good Hope FM Breakfast with Guy McDonald
show (weekdays from 6-9am) is focused on collecting raincoats, beanies and scarves. The team believes that these items can make a significant difference to a child's sense of confidence and maintain their health over winter. The Nigel Pierce Show
(weekdays from 9am-12pm) is once again collecting blankets and the "Nigel Pierce Makes a Blanket Statement" campaign has an end goal to collect a minimum of 2,500 blankets this year.
The Lunch on Mars
team (weekdays from 12-3pm) is collecting as many pairs of shoes for the needy as possible, identifying various charities around Cape Town as the beneficiaries. The Ozone team's
(weekdays from 3-6pm) "Soup Heroes" initiative involves collecting tinned soup and hosting a soup-off, challenging listeners and celebrities to submit their winning soup recipes, which they will cook in a challenge to win the title of Soup Hero. Two soup-offs are scheduled during a live broadcast of The Ozone
, the first was on the 12th and the second is on the 24th of June. Pick n Pay are kindly donating all the ingredients the 'chefs' will need. The Ayanda Tini Show
(Monday to Thursday from 6-8pm) is asking listeners to donate tights, stockings and socks for kids of all ages. All the donated items will be given to orphanages and children's homes across the Mother City.
The annual Good Hope FM Keep Cape Town Warm
campaign runs until the end of June 2014. Donations for the campaign can be dropped off at the SABC building at 209 Beach Road in Sea Point and Community Chest offices, 82 Bree Street.
