substance abusers turn over a new leaf

BY Bay FM

 A group of substance abusers in the Gelvandale area have been given a new lease on life this past week, after attending the Anathallo 10 Step Recovery & Life Skills Impartation Workshop.
The program, written and presented by Ignacio Schneider, aims to assist substance abusers towards recovery and restoration. It couples biblical principles with experience of substance abuse and formal rehabilitation. Mr Schneider himself was a substance abuser for 12 years.
The first workshop, which started on 10 October, was attended by Weldon Mentoor, Sagren Erasmus, Georgia Langford, Lester Stevens, Christopher Moss and Jillian Williams
 
“The visible change in the attendees after merely days was amazing. From scruffy to clean-shaven, from sagging shoulders to heads held high,  the change of heart has become apparent on their exterior”, said Schneider.
Facilitator Lucius Hufkie commented that Anathallo focuses not only on the physical and emotional effects of substance abuse, but mainly on the spiritual aspect. Abusers don’t only damage their bodies, but they lose self-confidence and hope. “These substances erode the good from every area of an abusers’ life”.
 
Extensive media coverage in week 1 has sparked the demand for more workshops, particularly in other parts of the Northern areas.
Subsequent workshops will be held as follows: West End Community Centre, 24-28 October; Booysens Park Community Hall 24-28 October; Harvest Christian Centre, Jacksonville 31 October to 4 November. All workshops are from 8am until 2pm on daily. Cost is R500 per participant, inclusive of all learning material and catering.
A call is being made for sponsorship. “Not everyone who expresses interest in the program can afford it. We appeal to our communities to support the initiative and in doing so, help put a life back on the right side of the tracks”, said Schneider.
Contact Ignacio Schneider at 073 302 7666 for further information and registration.
The workshops continue weekly.

Local is “LekkaMos” with Bay FM 107.9

BY Bay FM

 
BayFM 107.9 is making good on the slogan ‘Our Community, Your radio’ with the launch of its exciting new campaign ‘#LekkaMos’.
 
 The # LekkaMos concept, aimed at providing a platform of exposure for home-grown talent, is set to revolutionise both marketing of and appreciation for local talent, across all genres.
 
“As a radio station functioning in the Eastern Cape, we have recognised both the abundance of exceptional talent, as well as our responsibility to said talent. It’s with this in mind, that this concept was birthed,” said BayFM Acting General Manager, Angelique Graaff.
 
#LekkaMos is derived from Local is Lekker, a phrase often used in conjunction with music or anything home-grown. Mos, an Afrikaans word, implies that what has been said is well known or self-evident.
“This is exactly what we, as a station, discovered. Our local talent has unique appeal. Gone are the days when aspiring artists relocate to other provinces in an effort to establish themselves.  With #LekkaMos, they can now step it up in their own backyard,” Graaff remarked.
 
With a listenership of 100 000, BayFM has the base to become a stepping stone for budding artists. #LekkaMos will create a platform for artists to show case their talent, by providing airplay to artists looking to break into the industry. This in turn provides the scope to harness local support and encourage greater awareness.
 
“#LekkaMos has the potential to develop beyond radio; it is however essential that we start somewhere. Local artists will soon know that BayFM 107.9 supports home-grown talent. Its #LekkaMos”, said BayFM Programs Manager, Luzuko Qoba.
The Lekkamos show, where only local music and artists will be featured, debuts this coming Saturday at 8pm.
Artists may visit www.bayfm.co.za   for more information on how to submit music.

BAYFM PAVING THE WAY FOR BLIND PASSION

BY Bay FM

BayFM 107.9 recently welcomed a new voice to the airwaves when Pieter Huysamen took over anchoring the popular Sunday evening music programme “Musiek Met Feel” a few weeks ago.

 

What makes this addition to the BayFM team significant is the fact that Pieter is blind, making him the first blind radio presenter in the Eastern Cape.

 

Pieter’s eyes were irreparably damaged when acid was thrown in his face in 2002; his eyes were surgically removed as a result.

“Pieter has the voice, life experience and extensive knowledge of music - a perfect combination for Musiek met Feel”, says BayFM General Manager Antonio Venturini. He believes Pieter’s passion contributes immensely to the success of the programme.

 

“When I still had my eyesight, I tackled everything in life systematically. When I became blind, I merely adapted my systems accordingly. The same applies to being on air. I’m not blind – I just can’t see”, said Huysamen.

 

While Pieter has a co-host to operate the playout system, he prepares and researches playlists for each show.

“I didn’t have time at my disposal to pursue my passion for music before. The opportunity presented to me by BayFM107.9 is truly fulfilling.”

 

Musiek Met Feel airs every Sunday evening from 18h00 to 21h00 on BayFM 107.9

BAY FM BLOOD DRIVE - KLINICARE, DESPATCH

BY Bay FM

Klinicare Apteek in Hoofstraat Despatch skud hul vere reg vir ‘n groot en belangrike bloedskenk-promosie wat plaasvind op Dinsdag, 26 November 2013 vanaf 12:00-19:00. 

 

Hierdie promosie word moontlik gemaak deur die Suid-Afrikaanse Nasionale Bloeddiens en Klinicare Apteek in Despatch in samewerking met Bay FM 107.9 en Williams Hunt Uitenhage tak.

 

“Die feesseisoen word geassosieer met ernstige bloedtekorte en die Despatch bloedskenk-promosie se doel is om soveel moontlik mense betrokke te kry om so krises te voorkom.  Daar word beoog om ten minste 80 mense te motiveer om moue op te rol en bloed te skenk op die dag” volgens Maryke Harris, Skakelbeampte SANBS Port Elizabeth tak.

 

Vervoer uitdagings sal aangespreek word op die dag met behulp van Williams Hunt Uitenahge wat ‘n tweerigting vervoerdiens aan skenkers sal bied op navraag.  Persone wat van hierdie diens gebruik wil maak moet asseblief direk met Williams Hunt kontak maak by 041 922 7823 en met Chantelle gesels.  Luiste ook gerus na Bay FM vir verdere inligting rondom die vervoerdiens wat beskikbaar sal wees.

 

“Die promosie tyd is vanaf 12:00 tot 19:00 wat die meerderheid mense in staat sal stel om op een of ander tyd ‘n draai te kom maak, al word daar bietjie laat gewerk.  Dit beteken daar is geen verskonings om nie deel te neem aan hierdie spesiale ‘omgee-geleentheid’ nie” sê Harris.

 

Dit beloof om ‘n lekker kuier-dag te wees met tonne gees, lekker musiek en goeie mense.  Volgens Nico van Klinicare Apteek is dit baie lekkerder om te gee as om te ontvang, so daar sal verskeie gelukkige pryse op die spel wees.  Om bloed te skenk beteken ook dat jy onvoorwardelik gee sonder om iets terug te verwag en dit is wat dit so spesiaal maak.

 

Bloeskenkers moet tussen die ouderdomme van 16 en 65 wees, meer as 50kg weeg, ‘n gesonde veilige lewenstyl handhaaf en ‘n maaltyd minstens vier ure voor die bloedskenking nuttig.

 

Kom kuier saam op 26 November 2013 by Klinicare Apteek Hoofstraat Despatch en kom deel in die pret van gee, want jou bloed red lewens.

 

Vir meer inligting kontak gerus Maryke Harris by SANBS op 041 391 8254 / maryke.harris@sanbs.org.za
