HHR wins National Lottery grant

£10,000 lottery award to Hereford Hospital Radio

The local Hospital Radio serving the patients and staff at Hereford’s County Hospital have been successful in obtaining a grant for £10,000 from the Big Lottery fund.
Hereford Hospital Radio is a local charity that has over 40 members, and provides bedside entertainment to patients at the city’s hospital and to those former patients listening at home, via the Internet or via the Hereford Hospital Radio’s recently developed iPhone app.The app for Apple iTunes allows former patients and relations to listen to the radio station wherever they are in the world. It was developed earlier this year. The grant is being used to extend the stations output, by allowing it to attend many local events and broadcast these events live back to patients. Wye Valley NHS Trust is also working with the station to strengthen its output and to find new ways of getting the radio heard across more of the county and into the local community.
Chris Hughes, Chairman, said, “We are delighted that on our first ever application to the National Lottery we have been successful. We are excited that over the coming months we can be broadcasting from events around the county, if anyone has an event they would like us to attend, please email info@hhr.org.uk.“If you would like to know more about HHR, Call 01432 233033.
