Radio Helderberg Pledge Appeal

Personal message

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Radio Helderberg wishes you all strength and good health during this time of isolation and disruption… We are here for you.
However, as with many businesses during this trying time, Radio Helderberg is struggling to keep head above water financially.
Many of our clients have, of necessity, canceled their advertisements, advertising campaigns, and Outside Broadcasts. This has left us in the untenable position of having to decide whether to continue this very important service to our community or to close our doors.

With our determination to remain on air, came a plan to appeal to the community of loyal listeners, advertisers and other interested parties, to assist us financially, by way of a fundraising campaign.
Radio Helderberg has been there for you over the past 24 years and we appeal to you to be there for us, by way of donations.

We understand these are difficult times and would sincerely appreciate any amount, big or small.

The impact of this campaign allows Radio Helderberg to continue to reach and be the mouthpiece of the Helderberg Community.

All funds collected will assist Radio Helderberg to keep head above water financially during these trying times so that we can continue to serve our advertisers and our community of loyal listeners.
