LOCAL radio presenters Beck Chalmer and Brian Coghlan are keen to MC Friday’s Christmas tree lighting event.
The duo, who host 3BO’s breakfast show as Cogho and Beck, said they strongly supported seeing the event return.
“I’m here each year with the kids,” Ms Chalmer said.
“We’re hoping to entertain the kids and have a bit of fun with a few surprises in store.
“The collective gasp as the lights are turned on makes it all worth it.
“We’re hoping people will get behind us.”
Mr Coghlan said he expected a strong turnout.
“In Bendigo it seems like no one will say they will go, then a stack of people turn up,” he said.
“Bendigo gets so passionate about community moments.”
Ms Chalmer said there would be a fun environment on the night.
“We’ll be focusing on the kids,” she said.
“It’ll be a lot of fun, stacks of spontaneity and a real focus on the Christmas environment.”
She thanked listeners for giving support to the event and said they often got behind community causes.
“We’ve got the most extraordinary listeners out there,” Ms Chalmer said.
