Local and International support for Bush Radio

03/11/2011

We have been really grateful to all the people who have given and shared goodwill with us to help keep the station going. The support has been amazing, from Aunty Val who dropped off sugar and tea, to singers Lira and Thandiswa Mazwai who recorded messages of support for us.

Appeals have also gone international; former interns have donated and our friends at Public Acheivement* in Northern Ireland have put together a screening of the Academy Award winning film Tsotsi this Sunday the 6th November 2011.

You can lend your financial support to Bush Radio by donating (CLICK HERE) or supporting us with your advertising.

* Public Achievement is Northern Ireland’s leading youth-focussed civic education organisation, and over the last 9 years they have been a partner with Bush Radio in a variety of projects including a youth project addressing violence as experienced by young people.

Fun times in Heideveld

18/01/2010

Check out the slide show of the outside broadcast that was held in Heideveld this past Saturday (16 January 2010). The ob was part of Bush Radio’s way of saying thank you to listener and supporter Cassiem “Die Bossie” Jumat who helped raise awareness and pledges for the work of Bush Radio.

Issues in Heideveld were highlighted through interviews with soccer clubs and youth development projects.

Lots of Bush Radio listeners came through to support the event as well as a film crew from Sweden who are working on a documentary in Cape Town. A special thanks to Superspar Gugulethu Square for supplying freshments for the children in the neighbourhood.
