Haydn was one of the driving forces behind the establishment of Radio Lollipop in Brisbane. In 1989 he initiated the first combined Brisbane radio stations fund raising event and through his efforts helped raise over $100,000 in just one day!
This funding meant the sick children in Brisbane could enjoy the benefits of Radio Lollipop for the last 22 years.
On their behalf we thank Haydn. One of his legacies will be the many, many smiles of sick children in hospital in Qld.

Bruce Uhlhorn
Chairman, Radio Lollipop International

Blog comments Your Say

  • Really sad to learn of Hayden Sargent's passing away. Ever since our arrival in Australia in 1975, we tuned to 4 BC daily inter alia to listen specially to Hayden. He was a no nonsense commentator who won our trust on so many issues that we valued in helping us to settle well in a new country. Our deepest sympathies to his family and may he rest peacefully in our Lord's favour.

  • Good day! I could have sworn I've visited this blog before but after going through some of the articles I realized it's new to
    me. Anyhow, I'm certainly happy I came across it and I'll be book-marking it and checking back

  • Every morning for years I turned on 4BC to listen to Haydn. I often rang in. It made my day so much brighter, I hardly noticed the housework I'd got through while listening to you. My radio never left my side, so much so it fell in the washing machine twice. Thanks Haydn, you made a difference to so many people.

  • To an amazing, compassionate & generous man.As a past teacher of Kenmore State High School if anything needed support & printing Haydn did it As President of the P&C his leadership was invaluable & he also saw the big picture. In my own personal life, he gave me invaluable support & advice when I lost my husband to cancer. We shared a few literary quotes. Thank you Haydn & may you rest in peace.VALE DEAR FRIEND!,

  • On behalf of the family I would like to thank all of Dad's listeners and colleagues for the contribution that they made to his life. Such a rich and diverse one. In particular we have always been grateful, as was Dad, for the kindness and generosity that 4BC management gave us particularly when he was so unwell. Such kindness is never forgotten.

  • I go back even further than the Brisbane listeners. Hayden was captain of Wollongong High School in 1954 and also a member of the boys' debating team that won a prestigious competition at the time.He was gracious enough even then to thank the girls' team for the very in school competition we gave them prior to their win.He was a mature leader and a friend.
