East Coast Radio’s Winter Warmth 2008 campaign has begun.

Sponsored by iTalk Cellular, East Coast Radio will once again embark on its annual initiative to blanket the less fortunate in our province during the season’s two coldest months.

East Coast Radio has appealed for donations of a blanket or cash to purchase new blankets during the nine-week campaign.

Blankets can be dropped off at East Coast Radio, iTalk Cellular branches or Durban Deliveries.
