5FM's Poppy gives back

2015-03-22 17:00

When Lent came around this year, 5FM's Poppy says she decided to do things a little differently.

Instead of having to "give up" something she decided to instead "give back" - and so she started #Sandwhichmarathon Tuesdays, inspired by the #40daysofzams concept.

Each week of lent Poppy has had a guest in studio to help her make sandwiches, which she then donates to a charity or school of the guests choosing.

"It's amazing how much something as simple as a sandwich can change someone's life," Poppy told us.

We really don't have enough social initiatives like this in South Africa," she adds.

Her most recent trip saw Poppy and her team hand out sandwiches at Sparrow School in Melville. The school is one that teaches kids with learning disabilities from disadvantaged backgrounds.



Poppy says that she has a surprise for her listeners for when the initiative ends- a special sandwich song sung by some of your favourite 5FM DJs.

Hey, Poppy! Let us know if we can help! We just love it when our celebs give back.
