"We had set our sights on raising R7-million," says Lloyd Madurai, managing director of HOT 102.7FM.

"Joburgers sure didn't let us down. Our business partners, listeners and friends showed their hearts of gold and we are absolutely thrilled with the success of the Teddython," adds Madurai.

"The generosity of the spirit of HOT 102.7FM fans ensures that HOT Cares has much-needed funds and resources to continue the excellent work for which they have become known," says Madurai.

"The past two years have seen increasing requests being made to HOT Cares for assistance, particularly due to the economic effects of the Covid crisis. We are humbled at how Joburgers have embraced the initiative and have reached out to help their compatriots in our community," Madurai adds.

"I want to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of the Teddython. Your commitment to making a meaningful difference in the lives of those who need assistance inspires all of us at HOT 102.7FM to strive to do better for you," concludes Madurai.
