I love it when a plan comes together.
I have a couple of mottos in life that I always try to stick by. Firstly my late Dad would quote ‘don’t let the b******* get you down’, when I was letting the haters get the better of me, and secondly ‘keep it simple’. I literally say it everyday to my team on air. A few months ago I was hosting an event and in a random conversation with someone who I’d never met before she mentioned ‘Clubbercise’ which she was going to at a primary school assembly hall. What a great idea I thought but if your going to do a fitness type event based on clubbing, surely you should take it to a club. Simple I thought. Little did I think that Paulo who works on the show and hates nightclubs would say ‘let’s run our own event’. Rebecca was in like flynn, I didn’t need to ask her twice. ‘Let’s do it for Cool FM’s charity’ and raise some money. Simple. We mentioned it on air as we needed a name and a caller to the show came up with ‘Fundraver’. Simple! The Cash for kids team contacted a few clubs and found Fourteen in Belfast who wanted to help us out and that was that, the event was on. Two talk ups on air and a sell out! Amazing. A simple idea, loads of glow sticks and high vis, a couple of great fitness instructors in Kylee and JD, great tunes, great company and the simple common goal of having fun, raising money and getting some exercise.

Mission accomplished. On to the next one. Thank you if you listen to the radio show, for joining in on and off air and for making our ‘Fundraver’ a success. Oggy Oggy Oggy………
