It’s that time of the year again! After the recent onslaught of stormy, cold and wet weather in Cape Town, more than 6000 people in some of our poorest communities and townships have been left vulnerable to the elements.

Bush Radio 89.5fm has embarked on a campaign to collect as much winter necessities as possible for our brothers and sisters who have to brace the cold and wet conditions without a roof over their heads. Please assist us! Show you care by dropping off your donations at:
