MPs and queens support appeal

Thursday December 13, 2012 Written by Published in Technology

TODAY’S radiothon and queenie show are the final events of a five-day appeal for the victims of four house fires in Nikao.

The national radiothon starts at 11am on Radio Cook Islands and will run for five hours.

Telecommunications minister Mark Brown will launch the programme. Government media advisor Trevor Pitt has been helping with preparations and says the fundraiser is a chance for the message of helping families in need to be spread beyond Rarotonga.

“The appeal will be to try and connect with the families and extended families of these people,” says Pitt. “It will target the outer islands people as well – they’ll want to make sure the message goes far and wide.”

The queenies show at Rehab starts at 11pm. Tickets are $5.

All money raised will go towards the fire appeal fund, which at present sits at $4300.

Tune in, pledge some money and head down to Rehab for what is set to be a festive Friday for a great cause.

The appeal has been organised by Bank of the Cook Islands (BCI).
