Welcome to Hospital Radio Hillingdon
Radio Hillingdon is not funded by the NHS and all of our day to day running costs are met with funds raised by our volunteers. If you would like to help us please make sure you visit our Fund-raising page or use our web shop further down this page.

Radio Hillingdon Broadcast Marathon 2016
In 2013 Hospital Radio Hillingdon embarked on a 100 hour journey, a challenge only our dedicated volunteers could possibly sustain… well actually, most people could probably do it.
September 2016 sees the welcome return of the Hospital Radio Hillingdon Broadcast Marathon. Attempted by many in the past and dutifully succeeded by most. This time, we have set the target of a massive 125 hours continuous broadcasting comprising five 25 hour shifts, each presented by at least two of our presentation team, all in the name of charity (because that’s what we do!).
SHIFT 1 - 15th Sept 07:00 Raymond Jackson and Phil Lee
SHIFT 2 - 16th Sept 08:00 Keith Hotston, Gerard Conway and Chris Green
SHIFT 3 - 17th Sept 09:00 Steve Hickman, Sarah Newton and Jimmy Callaghan
SHIFT 4 - 18th Sept 10:00 Hawa Kassam, Mark Turner and George Reed
SHIFT 5 - 19th Sept 11:00 Jon Herd, Colin Moore and Trev Hughes
Ends 20th Sept 12:00
The aim of the event is primarily to raise much needed funds to keep the radio station on its feet and we are proud to be sharing some of our proceeds with two other very worthy causes;
Mount Vernon Cancer Centre and the popular well known children’s charity, Make-A-Wish.
The broadcast will take place in The Hillingdon Hospital and online at www.radiohillingdon.com from 7am on Thursday 15th September, finishing 125 hours later on Tuesday 20th September.
We’re on the lookout for sponsors for our presenters and corporate sponsors for the various features that the marathon comprises (maybe the weather, or the breakfast show…).
Please visit our website contact page if you would like to get involved.
Thanks in advance for your kind generosity and remember the date for your diary to join us on air!
