K-Rock help the homeless ahead of winter

Staff Writer

K-Rock in Geelong has helped out more than 1,000 homeless people when the station collected 5,000 + blankets to fill the city’s National Wool Museum.

The culmination of the month long promotion with the Salvo's saw the blankets taken to the National Wool Museum in a 20 tonne Fuso truck before being spread throughout the museum.

Breakfast host Leroy Brown, the creator of the initiative, spent the time interviewing several Geelong people living it rough and gave listeners an emotional insight of life on the streets of Geelong.

K-Rock's PD Leigh Kuhlmann said: “This is one of those things that everyone can relate to, because it could so easily be anyone of us sleeping out there in cars or under bridges. We really sincerely want to thank the people of Geelong for the generosity they show every year when we blanket Geelong.”
