It was Gold FM’s pleasure to welcome Zoe, Lucy, Kate and Bella from Waihi College into the Gold FM studio today. The students are in Year 7 and Year 8 at the college and are currently working on completing 20 hours of a passion project - something they’ve never done before, 20 hours of community service - something giving back to the community and five outdoor activities.

The girls decided they wanted to help the community in need so would ask people to donate a can of food.They are holding a mufti day on Friday where students wearing mufti are asked to bring a can instead of a gold coin.

The girls are also encouraging the community to drop off nonperishable food throughout this week. Sanitary products, canned food, dried pasta, things like that would be really good for our community the girls said.
