Jodie and Soda love to come to the rescue of our friends of the show because they are the most giving, caring of all radio listeners (we did the research, we promise it’s true!)

But sometimes you hear about a story where you would love to just help out everyone involved.

This was one of those.

Karen got in touch with Jodie and Soda about her cousin, who she says, is always helping out charities but may have accidentally helped out a bit too much.

Cynthia was moving house and, with everything packed into boxes, she accidentally donated all of her electrical goods to charity.

When Jodie and Soda called Cynthia to surprise her with a brand new electrical package, she told them that Karen was actually the one who deserved a bit of love.

Karen, 40, is battling cancer for the second time, Cynthia told us: “They’re telling her that it looks like it may be stage four palliative.”


“It’s a bugger of a thing, she got it first time around was breast cancer and she beat that.”

When Jodie and Soda heard Karen’s story they wanted to give the two cousins something to enjoy together.

Take a listen to the moment Jodie and Soda helped got to help out both Cynthia and Karen:
