Triple M Southwest launches ‘Blanket Bunbury’


Triple M Southwest is launching a new community initiative, Blanket Bunbury.

From today (Friday May 3rd), Triple M Southwest will be calling on the local community to provide new or unused blankets to assist the homeless as the cooler winter months set in.

The South West recently recorded the highest proportion of people rough sleeping in WA, with a 62.9% increase in people experiencing homelessness.

Blanket Bunbury will launch with a live broadcast at Martin Burns Bedroom Furnishings store, hosted by Triple M Southwest’s Drive show presenter Cliff Reeve.

Listeners and the local community are invited to bring blankets down between 9am and midday to kickstart the blanket drive.

Reeve says “Considering the Southwest region is a very giving community, we’ll be able to help those who are doing it tough, and perhaps most importantly, it will highlight that there is a homelessness problem in our town that we can help alleviate.”

Following a month of blanket collections, Triple M Southwest will host another live broadcast on Saturday 1 June, showcasing the donated blankets by covering The Graham Bricknell Memorial Music Shell in Bunbury.

Triple M Southwest will be accepting blanket donations until 1 June.

Drop off points for the new or unused blankets are:

  • Triple M Bunbury, Spencer Street, Bunbury
  • Triple M Busselton, Queen Street, Busselton
  • Martin Burns, Blair Street, Bunbury
