Hit91.9’s Flick & Tim hire themselves out to raise drought relief funds
Hit91.9 Bendigo’s Breakfast team have rolled up their sleeves to raise money for drought-affected farmers.
Flick and Tim hired themselves out to the local community, taking up 15 different jobs at Bendigo businesses who’ve pledged to donate to the Buy a Bale drought campaign.
One job saw Tim cleaning an unheated pool at Clark Rubber in only his budgie smugglers.
Another saw him driving a tractor at KV equipment, who donated a massive $22,000 to the campaign.
“I think sometimes I forget, and take for granted, just how cushy it is working in radio,” said Tim.
“I’ll tell you what, working at the Bridgewater Bakehouse with 14 people in the line – I’ve haven’t been swept off my feet like that in quite a while.
“It’s great to be out there meeting all these wonderful people. Everyone is so happy and excited by the project, and so happy to be helping out.”
