Ra­dio an­nouncer goes Live for 25

Narrogin Observer - - Front Page - Laura Gru­bisa

Triple M went Live for 25 last week to raise money for Give Me 5 for Kids.

Break­fast an­nouncer Al­lan Ald­worth was live from 5.30am last Wed­nes­day to 9am last Thurs­day as part of a fundraiser for South­ern Cross Aus­tereo’s charity.

This fundraiser comes just a week af­ter the highly suc­cess­ful women’s footy night the ra­dio sta­tion hosted at Clay­ton Road Oval.

Ald­worth said he be­came deliri­ous sev­eral times dur­ing the live broad­cast, but was de­ter­mined to push through.

“Around 4pm in the af­ter­noon, I be­came pretty tired and I thought ‘ damn, it’s only 4pm!’,” he said.

“I just had to keep mak­ing goals to get my­self through.

“9pm was the next goal; I just have to make it to 9pm and then keep go­ing.”

Triple M raised $1900 from spon­sors and the sta­tion raised even more in cash do­na­tions as it broad­cast live from Nar­ro­gin Fruit Mar­ket on Thurs­day, from 8-9am.

Ald­worth said it was hard work but worth it for a great cause.

“It went re­ally well, and as corny as it sounds, it made my heart feel full af­ter­wards,” he said.

“It was so awe­some for the whole com­mu­nity to get around some­thing, es­pe­cially for a good charity like Give Me 5 for Kids.”

Give Me 5 for Kids is a national fundraiser for chil­dren’s hos­pi­tal wards across re­gional Aus­tralia.
