Concrete Gang, winners of the Spirit of 3CR Award, 2015

Congratulations to the Concrete Gang for taking out the 2015 Spirit of 3CR Award, and well deserved it is. The Concrete Gang have been broadcasting weekly on 3CR for almost 40 years making sure that CFMEU workers are informed about their industrial rights, safety and encouraging a great culture of looking after one another at work. And full marks for comic delivery, making what could be a dry topic down right hilarious.

Get ready for some amazing prizes in this year's 3CR fundraising raffle! Tickets are only $2 each or 3 for $5 and you can buy them at the station or better still email us and we'll post out a book to sell.  We have some great prizes this year including a bike voucher from our most generous donors Reid Cycles
