Sponsorship

Sponsoring Hereford Hospital Radio

Hereford Hospital Radio broadcasts 24 hours a day to patients and staff at Hereford’s County Hospital. In addition to this, we broadcast on the internet to allow patients to continue to listen while they are recovering at home.

The station was formed over 40 years ago, by a partnership between the hospital, Hereford Lions Club, and the County Youth Service.

Since those days the station has developed and we now have a team of volunteers who broadcast on air, collect requests and help in many ways to keep the charity running. All volunteers take part in fundraising events, as without this, the station would close.

It costs £3.5k a year to keep the station running and these costs are met by our members efforts in raising funds, and additional donations from local organisations.

We have tried to demonstrate the popularity of the station by attaching Appendix 1. This shows how many listeners we have in the hospital; we are the 2nd most popular station at the County Hospital. In addition to our patients, we have a growing audience online, who are enjoying our programming and 2012’s listening figures are shown.

We are always seeking businesses and organisations to help support Hereford Hospital Radio, and this document presents some of the options available to you.

Whilst they are not set in stone, they do give an idea of the ways that you can help us, and we can help you in publicising your association with this local charity.
