The Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) hosted its 11th annual Shavathon on 1 March 2014.
To support this initiative, Tuks FM invited CANSA on 27 February to take part in a shavathon and spray-on.

The staff members of Tuks FM decorated their hair with bright colours and one brave individual, Quintus Potgieter, DJ at Tuks FM and co-presenter of the Man Cave, shaved off all his hair for this noble cause.


Tuks FM joined in on the fun at the Run4Rhinos event which took place on 7 September 2013. The race, a student initiative, aims to raise awareness and funds for a DNA rhino database.


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 them.


Tuks FM, in collaboration with the University of Pretoria, brought warmth to their hearts and tummies by donating blankets, food, clothing and much-needed funds. Donations of money, blankets, tinned food and clothing to the value of  R200 000 were received. The donations received were distributed to Indaba Zosindiso Orphanage, Elandspoort; Boitumelo’s Children’s Home, Soshanguve; Sunnyside Orphanage, Sunnyside; President Kruger Children’s Home, Villieria; Community of Sant’ Egidio, Tshwane; Child Welfare Tshwane, Brooklyn and Angels Without Wings based in Pretoria North.


On 6 February 2014 Tuks FM welcomed the Rare Disease Society of South Africa.

The ambassador of the society, Oscar von Memerty who has a rare condition called Maroteaux Lamy Syndrome (characterised by dwarfism amongst other symptoms) entertained students at the University of Pretoria with his smooth moves.

Tuks FM supported the cause by driving the on-air campaign and facilitating the on-campus brand activation outside the Tuks FM studio.


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.


On Saturday, 7 June 2014, Tuks FM joined Wollies Animal Project for a fun golf day fundraiser at the Hillside Golf Course in Pretoria North.
Tuks FM entertained the public with vibey tunes while Tuks FM newsreader, Adrian van der Velden acted as the announcer on the day. For more information on Wollies Animal Project visit


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.
