Radio DJs in 24-hour charity challenge

BY 11am tomorrow, Friday, they might be struggling to keep going. Radio broadcasters, Des Clarke and Jennie Cook, are expected to have spent all night performing across Central Scotland, as part of a 24-hour charity fundraiser.

The pair – who present the breakfast show on Capital FM Scotland – began yesterday at 11am with the aim of performing 24 gigs in 24 hours.

The station’s Help a Capital Child campaign is seeking to fund specialist units and care for young people living with cancer across the UK, through the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Says the station, it is its biggest appeal of the year.

Continues a Capital media release: “Along the way they will be singing the national anthem at Hampden Stadium – where they launched the challenge – breakdancing in Glasgow city centre, performing a comedy show in West Lothian, singing the national anthem again at Murrayfield [stadium], taking part in group singing in a Motherwell care home, becoming club DJ’s in Bathgate, singing the dinner menu in a pub in Morningside, Edinburgh, amongst much more.”

Listeners can help them raise money by donating £3 by texting LIVE to 70766 during the challenge and next week.
