It's the Fundraising that keeps us going
As a registered charity and a voluntary organisation, fund-raising becomes an integral part of the life of Radio Hillingdon. A common misconception is that Radio Hillingdon is funded by the N.H.S. , this is not the case.
We are funded almost entirely by the support and fund-raising efforts of our volunteers, without which we simply could not continue to provide the excellent service we offer to the patients of Hillingdon Hospital.
Our volunteers are always looking for new, interesting and innovative ways in which to raise much needed funds. Our volunteers give up their time to plan, arrange and run various events throughout the year.
These are some of the ways in which we raise our funds; we attend car-boot sales and bazaars, we organise Quiz Nights and Race Nights and we have been fortunate to be allowed to have collections in local supermarkets and shopping centres.
We hold sponsored events, such as our 100 hour Broadcast Marathon, where several of our members are sponsored to broadcast non-stop for 25 hours each.
One service which we provide has been very successful over the years, we have a Road-Show, which we take to local schools and village fetes to provide them with a P.A. & music, we have a comprehensive range of music, radio mic facilities, a cassette deck, a mini disk player, c.d. player, plus extra speakers if required, which can be hired for a reasonable fee.
This is a great opportunity for us as it highlights our profile within the local community. We have also established an On Air Sponsorship opportunity for local companies; we have a range of packages to suit the clients budget and their requirements. Because of our charitable status we are unable to air advertisements.
During the forty years that we have been in existence, we have been fortunate enough to have been awarded grants from the National Lottery Fund, which have helped immensely in upgrading our equipment and keeping us as a state of the art radio station.
