No 2 for Radio Hauraki’s Day in the Loo

After the tremendous success of last year’s Day in Loo event for Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, Radio Hauraki are currently in the process of a Number 2. Hmmmm, perhaps I could have phrased that better……

For 12 hours today, Wednesday June 26, Radio Hauraki, are raising awareness and essential funds for Bowel Cancer New Zealand by spending it in The Empire Tavern dunnies. Some of New Zealand’s favourite comedians and broadcasters are quite prepared to be the butt of jokes including Dai Henwood, Hayley Sproull, Mel Bracewell, Tony Lyall, Tom Sainsbury and Tim Batt.

Matt Heath, Radio Hauraki Breakfast Host, said:

“When Dai bravely shared his battle with stage four bowel cancer last year, it made us all want to take action to support this important cause. I’m stoked to be alongside my fellow Radio Hauraki hosts Jeremy Wells, Angelina Grey, Greg Prebble, Jason Hoyte, Mike Minogue, and Chris ‘Keyzie’ Key for another year supporting our very good mate Dai Henwood and raising funds for a cause that’s close to our hearts.

This year, our mission is to once again flush out a massive pile of cash for Bowel Cancer New Zealand. So, swing by The Empire or tune in, this year we’re wanting listeners to send in their best gags via the iHeartRadio Talkback function, helping us keep the laughs rolling for a solid 12 hours straight!”

Reflecting on last year’s event, comedian Dai Henwood said:

“I’ve had several people reach out to me since our first Day in Loo, telling me they got checked and caught cancerous cells early. This kind of awareness is crucial, and it’s exactly why we started this event. I’m looking forward to being back with the Radio Hauraki team and Bowel Cancer New Zealand for Day in Loo Number 2.'”

Day in Loo Number 2 started at 6am and continues until 6pm at The Empire Tavern, 137 Victoria Street West, Auckland CBD if you want to pop to the loo, or you can listen via Radio Hauraki frequencies or on iHeartRadio.
