The Big Favour

EAST COAST RADIO  |  Podcast , ±4 min episodes every 1 week, 2 days  | 
The Big Favour has been on air on East Coast Radio since 2003. Over the years, Damon Beard - and his faithful sponsors - has helped to make hundreds of listeners' dreams come true - no matter how big or how small. From building a house for 3 abandoned children; to a fully paid-for funeral for a family who couldn't afford to lay their mom to rest; to a night's hotel accommodation for a woman facing life threatening surgery - and whose only request was to spend quality family time away before the operation. The Big Favour airs every Thursday at 7.40am and again on Mondays at 10.23am.

Animal shelter's relief thanks to the #BigFavour

Gianna Scoulelis runs her own animal shelter, Animally Haven, on the North Coast of KwaZulu Natal. Starting out with just two dogs, she now takes care of 120 dogs, 100 cats, 19 pigs, and three rabbits. With running a shelter comes massive vet bills and enormous food costs. Although Gianna does get donations, if those don’t come in, any vet bill that needs to be paid or food that needs to be bought comes out of Gianna’s own pocket. The Big Favour stepped in to help.
