Wooly Winter is a community outreach
program Tuks FM does each year. In
2012 we asked listeners to donate blankets
which were distributed to various
organizations, including Jakaranda
Kinderhuis. We received over R65 000
worth of donations in 2012
Tuks FM has a great ongoing relationship
with the South African National
Council for the Blind. Tuks FM crew
members took part in White Cane Day
which created awareness about the
blind and how the community can assist
We asked listeners to donate R67 to the SPCA . We wanted 67 donations but got over 250 instead. The crew then spent the day helping out at the SPCA playing with animals and cleaning their cages.
Run4Rhinos is a walk/run event which
donates all proceeds to the conservation
and protection of rhinos in South Africa.
The Tuks FM crew put on their running
shoes and rocked for our rhinos.
Disability Day provided a chance to
create awareness about disabilities
among students in a fun and creative
way. On the day there were wheelchair
races, a beautiful performance by a
blind group of singers and a chance to
interact with guide dogs.
