Radio station keeping Cape Town warm this winter

Good Hope FM

Local Cape Town radio station Good Hope FM is staging a Keep Cape Town Warm campaign, which appeals to the Cape Town public as well as businesses to donate blankets, food, clothing and money for the city’s less fortunate inhabitants.
The radio station will broadcast live from different intersections around Cape Town every Wednesday from 6am to 7pm (starting 3 June, ending 29 July).

Listeners will be asked to drive past the intersections and drop off blankets and tinned food for the needy. Good Hope FM personalities will be present at the intersections from 6am to 7pm to help collect items from drivers who can’t stop their cars.
