East Coast Radio’s Toy Story campaign wins best ‘Community Project’
A campaign that encourages the people of KwaZulu-Natal to generously give toys and cash to those less fortunate each festive season has been hailed at a national level. East Coast Radio’s Toy Story was named the best Community Project at the MTN Radio Awards 2012 this weekend.
The station is overjoyed and humbled by this recent announcement. East Coast Radio General Manager Trish Taylor says, “The smiles on the faces of the thousands of little recipients in government hospitals, crèches, orphanages and child-headed households are always such amazing reward for those who are involved in this corporate social investment initiative. MTN’s Radio Award of the project adds to our sense of pride in the campaign!” She says, “Our staffers, especially our CSI project manager, Anusha Timul and the major sponsor for Toy Story 2011 – Game – did a fabulous job this year. We’d also like to thank our listeners for their involvement. Each year the people of KwaZulu-Natal show that we’re a province filled with warm-hearted individuals and corporates!”
As part of Toy Story, between October and December last year, 50 000 toys and more than 4600 food parcels were handed out to children in government hospitals, crèches, orphanages and child-headed households.
East Coast Radio is also very proud of the six other nominations received for the MTN Radio Awards 2012. They were across a wide range of categories including; Afternoon Drive Presenter, Afternoon Drive Show, News and Actuality Producer, News Bulletin Reader, Promotion/Stunt/Event and Programme Innovation.
