Join radio's annual charity toy drive

For the seventh year running, Good Hope FM's Toy Toy campaign is back, with the Nigel Pierce Show - Mon-Fri 9am to 12pm - broadcasting live from the offices of various corporates across Cape Town. The station collects toys for disadvantaged children in the city.
"We're doing something small, but in many households, we make an impact and we also take the pressure off some parents who can't afford to buy their child a toy. Thank you Cape Town," says Pierce.

With the annual campaign raising over R1 million and over 1200 crates of toys during the past six years, the station is hoping that people in the city will once again open their hearts.
