Hot Tomato to help locals stay warm this winter

Coats for a cause 400wWITH winter fast approaching, a Gold Coast radio station is calling out to generous locals to help keep the city’s less advantaged people warm.

1029 Hot Tomato, alongside Neweys Dry Cleaners and Rosies, are behind the unique Coats For A Cause donation campaign.

Gold Coasters are being encouraged to take part in the clothing drive and donate all unwanted coats to those who need them most this winter.


Every donated coat will be dry cleaned for free at Neweys Dry Cleaning stores and Rosies will then distribute the coats at their cook outs in Surfers Paradise.

Sean ‘Flan’ Flannigan from 1029 Hot Tomato’s breakfast program said he is thrilled to be involved.

‘I can’t wait to get on board! My wife has already started cleaning out my closet as I am sure I have a few coats for the cause that don’t fit me that well anymore.” said Sean.

Justin Hudson Owner of Neweys Dry Cleaning Stores hopes locals jump on board and help out fellow Gold Coasters.

“This cause will allow us to give a helping hand to Gold Coasters who need it most,” said Justin.

“We want them to know that there are warm coats available for them this winter so it is one less thing they have to worry about.”

Rosies Gold Coast Coordinator Wendy Coe said,”This initiative will mean that we can provide people who need it, some extra warmth this winter.”

“We constantly have people coming in asking for clean clothes and know we will be inundated this winter especially with the wet weather so we’re so excited to be kicking off Coast For A Cause.”

Coats can be dropped at Neweys Dry Cleaning Stores and at 1029 Hot Tomato throughout the month of May.
