CHETWYND, B.C. – The “Newf” is officially off the roof.  A Surerus-Murphy employee had been camped out on the roof of Peace FM in Chetwynd and wouldn’t leave the roof until the community raised $25,000.

As of 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Derek Pickford, better known as the “Newf on the Roof”, left the roof of Peace FM raising over $30,000 for local charities in the community and the Make a Wish Foundation.  You can still donate online through a GoFundMe Campaign.

Pickford started the fundraiser Wednesday morning and spent 96 hours on the roof of the radio station living through temperatures below minus 40.
