Algoa FM presenters will be out and about investing 67 minutes for a charity in their broadcast area to mark Mandela Day.
Each presenter has selected a charity that is close to their hearts in which they will be spending their 67 minutes with, on Friday, 18 July.
"This approach encourages and informs Algoa FM listeners about 11 different charities stretching from the Garden Route to the Wild Coast and inland to the borders of the Eastern Cape. Algoa FM listeners and presenters are then able to be of greater assistance in meeting the needs of the various charities" says Algoa FM PR and CSI Manager Jennilee Peremore.
"The charities will also benefit from the exposure they enjoy as each presenter promotes their beneficiary on air.
"Listeners have been invited to visit our website to find out more about the charity, what their needs are, and how the listener can help.
"We believe that the exposure the charities enjoy will provide benefits for a long time after Mandela Day," says Peremore.
