Nugget and Al to go out with a bang on last day in Gympie
GYMPIE-based foster carers will receive the thank you they deserve with local
organisation IFYS Foster Care to receive a sizeable community donation.
In less than two weeks, $10,500 has been raised for IFYS Foster Care through the
“10K for $10K” campaign driven by local radio station, Zinc.
The initial target of $10,000 was surpassed on Thursday, heightening the excitement felt by
departing breakfast hosts, Nugget & Al, who will end the campaign by walking 10km
across Gympie on Friday, their last day after 12 years as breakfast hosts of Zinc 96.
Nugget & Al say they have been blown away by the generosity of the local community
donating to their last Zinc 96 campaign, and explain how the fundraising will help
provide loving homes for Gympie foster kids.
“These amazing families really rely on the support of IFYS Foster Care. If they need
something at the drop of a hat, that’s who they call. $10,000 will help give IFYS Foster
Care resources…everything from toiletries to school camps,” Nugget & Al said, adding
that they hope to see the fundraising tally continue to climb over the next few days.
IFYS Foster Care supports five carers in Gympie and aspires to recruit a
further 15 carers.
Zinc 96 is still encouraging donations to the cause on Friday and over the weekend.
