East Coast FM will ‘Step Up For Cancer’ from April 1st to 8th to raise vital funds for cancer support services across Wicklow and for The Wicklow Hospice.
Starting in Blessington, the East Coast team, accompanied by supporters, will Walk the Garden County, visiting each of the Cancer Support Centres across 8 days.
Over 12 years, Wicklow’s Favourite Radio station has raised over €400,000 for Cancer Support Services and The Wicklow Hospice thanks to the incredible generosity of people across the county.
Donating is easy! Call 01 27 24 700 text or whatsapp 087 77 11 103 with the words ‘Donate’ and a member of the fundraising helpline will call you back or go to EastCoast.fm and do it online! Everyone who donates goes into a draw for the chance to win amazing prizes every hour during the walk! And every time you donate, you have more chances of winning! Throughout the week, listeners will hear directly from volunteers who tirelessly strive to keep the services running, as well as from those who have directly benefited, as they share their inspirational and emotive stories. The progress of the walk can be followed on air and online and there will be surprise live performances from well-known local musicians along the way.
Commenting on the significance of this year’s initiative, Event Coordinator and East Coast FM Morning Show Producer, Clare Hogan said:
‘We’re very excited for this fresh Challenge for 2022 and we know the people of Wicklow will once again get behind it. This year more than ever, it’s so important to donate, as these services have been severely impacted by the pandemic, yet their incredible work must continue.’
