Listen: Juice 107.3's Malcolm chats with support Nicole about why Juice 107.3 gave her hope for tomorrow.
This week is the Hope for tomorrow appeal, where Juice 107.3 raise the vital support to keep us broadcasting a message of hope across the Gold Coast. We also get to hear from valued supporters, like Nicole, who generously shared about the importance of Juice 107.3 in her life.
“I’ve got what’s called complex post-Traumatic stress order, which has only recently been diagnosed. I need music on. I am very musical, and I love having Juice 107.3. When I left Sydney, I felt like I moved into a country town. I was like, oh my gosh, how am I gonna cope with this? It was beautiful to have Juice [107.3] because it’s safe, it’s music… it was always my lifeline. I had it on in the kitchen, I had it on in the car and I knew that would never be negative stuff.”
“So whatever I was going through, I was getting the little tidbits of just constant reminders. God’s here, God’s here, God’s here. It’s okay, you’ll be alright. Just having that constant throughout the day, no matter what situation I was in, that was always there. So I just always had it in the background and in the worst situations I’d have it on.”

Because it changes lives. This station is ordained by God. That’s all I can say.
We asked Nicole what she would say to others who were thinking about giving, whatever their capacity, to encourage them to ensure Juice 107.3 is here for people just like you?
“Because it changes lives. This station is ordained by God. That’s all I can say.
“Giving enables this station to run and without this station… I have been through literally hell and back and had it not been for the Christian radio stations, and having God in your life as that constant reminder, it makes a difference…”
[There was a] “six week period where I literally could not get outta bed. For me, it’s just unheard of, but it was there and it kept me going.”
“There’s a lot of us that have mental health issues, high functioning people in particular, and you hide it well to your own detriment and it leads to burnout. And I’ve been there and done it… Hand it over and listen to Juice [107.3] and hand it over to God.”
