Orange seg­ment a nod to SES

Pilbara News - - Pilbara Lifestyle - Ali­cia Per­era

Staff at Spirit Ra­dio 1260FM Kar­ratha found a way to cel­e­brate the dual causes of vol­un­teer­ing and health in one go last Wed­nes­day.

The team thought up a unique way to ac­knowl­edge SES aware­ness-rais­ing day Wear Orange Wed­nes­day, which is held in the mid­dle of Na­tional Volunteer Week, by com­bin­ing it with their reg­u­lar World Record Wed­nes­day seg­ment.

They asked the pub­lic to bring them as many or­anges as pos­si­ble while they broad­cast live from out­side the Kar­ratha SES sta­tion from 8-9am.

The call to ac­tion clearly worked, as lis­ten­ers de­liv­ered 133 or­anges to the SES base, giv­ing the ra­dio team healthy snacks to last for some time.

Break­fast an­nouncer Pablo Miller said the team was im­pressed with the re­sponse.

“It was amaz­ing to see our lis­ten­ers em­brace and get be­hind Kar­ratha SES and WOW day,” he said.

“The SES is an in­te­gral ser­vice for re­gional WA and it’s great to give back to an or­gan­i­sa­tion that gives so much to us here in the Pil­bara.”
