Gold Coast Triple M walk the walk for flood relief
On Friday, Triple M Gold Coast’s Flan, Spida and Ali walked 33kms over 13 hours to raise money for flood relief.
The breakfast team walked, talked and tin-rattled their way across the Gold Coast while broadcasting live, raising a solid $20,000 for flood victims on the Tweed and in Northern NSW.
The Gold Coast team partnered with Serving Our People to ensure all funds raised in Triple M’s K’s for Cash community fundraiser go directly to givit.org.au.
“As a community, there’s been a genuine sense of not knowing how to help the communities who have been devastated by the floods,” said Triple M’s Ali Plath.
“In some towns it looks like a third-world country, and at this stage, there is no financial help. A lot are uninsured and there are so many people homeless.”
“We’ve had hundreds of listeners phone in asking how they can help, and so we literally took to the streets, old school, and what a day it was!”
One special moment was when a tradie stopped the team and handed $1,000 over, wanting no mention on air, but just to do his bit.
“We couldn’t sit by and do nothing, we needed to help and help now. So, Gold Coast, we came for you, and you answered….. THANK YOU,” said Flan.
You can help and donate at givit.org.au.
