During Bay FM’s August Radiothon, subscribers were asked if they would like to see $5 of their subscription money donated to one of four charities: The SHIFT Project Byron (for women in crisis), Mullum Cares (environmental action), One Roof Byron (which helps the homeless) or the youth oriented One Vision Productions.

This week they made good on that promise.

Present in the studio for the redistribution of wealth were Genevieve Lee (One Roof), Sasha Mainsbridge and Celine Massa from Mullum Cares, Lowell Beale (One Roof), Nicki Fisher from Bay FM, Kay Kuff (One Vision) and Oliver McElligott (Bay FM).
