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.
Chairman, Radio Lollipop International
