Established in 1977, Torbay Hospital Radio provides music and entertainment to the patients and staff at Torbay Hospital. Run solely by dedicated volunteers, the charity relies on grants, donations and support from the public.
Like many, we have been affected by COVID-19 as we haven’t been able to raise as much funding as we usually would.
Pre-lockdown we raised much of our funds from outside broadcasts. This past year we haven’t been able to run the events.
With restrictions easing we have now got some bookings. However, the outside broadcast vehicle - an old caravan, is too old and not fit for purpose. We want to raise funds for a gazebo, outside broadcast desk and other outside broadcast equipment to enable us to support the community with our PA and music services to local communities and charities who hire us for their events. Plus, our outside broadcasts bring extra entertainment to our listeners - the patients at Torbay, who hear about the fun and mischief we get up to.
We need your help to raise the funds for this new equipment. Any donation big or small will be much appreciated.
