The spirit of 16 Days for Youth clearly lives on as the Heart FM on-air team decided to spend the night outside in the cold in a bid to collect as many blankets as possible for the homeless in the city. Our partnership with McDonalds, made the McDonalds in Green Point our drop-off zone for the night, with the 18 hour night ahead of us seemingly daunting yet exciting.

At 8am a panel van and crew pulled up to the broadcast and said they’ve got something share with the Heart Breakfast team.

Watch the video to see what unfolded:

A huge thank you to all our listeners and the TFG group for supporting the blanket drive, turned out to be a great success and worth the effort.

Wishing all our presenters, producers and support crew a peaceful day’s rest.
