Community Channel has championed talent who otherwise would not have the opportunity to progress in their career. By making this investment I hope that they to will give me that chance as well as for other's who would not otherwise get a look in in the media industry.

It's uplifting to have an opportunity to invest in something that offers the community a voice and platform for local interests. Here's hoping you reach the target so you can continue to support the community.

A wonderful chance to invest in a project that will benefit the whole community ..as a nation...and i believe it will grow and develop into a national treasure.........

This channel was on free view full time and I watched most of the programmes. It has now gone to 8 hrs in the mornings which is not enough . The content is good for communities and learning for all ages. Carry on the great work
