A CHARITY boss has made a passionate last minute plea for readers to tune in to Talk Radio Europe’s annual telethon this Friday.
The phone in, backed by the Olive Press, aims to raise thousands for Joan Hunt’s embattled cancer hospice Cudeca.
“We really hope everyone will tune into this exciting and uplifting day,” said founder Hunt.
Listeners can win tickets for Wimbledon, Manchester United and Birmingham City games, as well as dinner with celebrities including Max Clifford and James Hewitt.
There is a signed Michael Jackson LP, green fees, football shirts, christmas cakes and curry nights also up for grabs.
In total there are over 100 prizes up for grabs to the highest bidders.
“The aim is to hit last year’s total of 24,000 euros,” said TRE CEO Steve Gilmour. “If we can meet that in the current economic climate we’ll be very grateful.”
“Charities have been hit hard and some events have only raised half of what they usually would,” he added.
The telethon will run from 10am to 7pm.
