NewFM’s Jade is hula hooping for bushfire-affected koalas

Former Assistant Editor

In the wake of destructive bushfires across NSW, Breakfast announcer Jade from The NOVOS on NewFM will be undertaking a feat of great resilience for a good cause.

After The NOVOS visited the Port Stephens Koala hospital, filled with victims of their habitat being destroyed, the team became determined to raise some money for animals.

Jade is going to hula hoop for 105 minutes non-stop to raise awareness and a minimum of $1,000 to help with the ongoing care of dispossessed and sick koalas.

The hooping will be aired live on the NEWFM Facebook page.
