HELP PLAINS FM REPLACE OUR STOLEN, BURNT OUT VEHICLE

$1,125 of $8,000 goal
Given by 13 generous donors in around 3 months

Stolen, dumped and burned to billy-o. Plains FM is fund-raising for a replacement vehicle! Can you Give A Little? Please share this link!

Christchurch, Canterbury

Rotten thieves stole our station vehicle in January 2024, damaged it, dumped it and then someone set it alight. It is our roving billboard and used for all sorts of visits to community groups and events.

Staff could all fit into it! We miss it and although it was insured the market value is nowhere near the amount we need to replace it with another newer but second-hand model.

We need to raise an extra $8000.

Can you help?!
