KCLR listener saves the day for local charity

A retired taxi driver has hopefully come to the rescue for a local charity.

Its after a 2 way radio was stolen when an Order of Malta ambulance was broken into in Kilkenny.

The ambulance was parked up at their offices at Wolfe Tone Street and it was only noticed yesterday morning that the passenger window had been smashed and the radio taken.

This morning Ned in Carlow, a listener to The Sue Nunn Show offered the use of a radio to the charity after hearing the story on KCLR.

Gardai are investigating the theft which happened sometime between last Tuesday evening and yesterday morning.
