How Sydney radio listeners came to the rescue
On Paul Murray's 2UE morning show today he set out to prove 'Sydney people are good people'.
The background to the story goes like this :-
On Sunday a 70 year old man was selling raffle tickets for the 'Kids with Cancer' charity when $4000 was stolen from him.
So while the police are doing their job to apprehend the robber/s, Murray urged his 2UE listeners to dig deep and raise the $4000 to give to the charity.
But by lunchtime they had raised $10,000 !!!!
"When you steal money from a charity you cross the line……Let's plug the hole for the charity; restore the faith of the charity worker and hopefully the cops put these crooks in jail."
A great story and shows how quickly radio can right a wrong by seizing the moment and calling listeners to action.
