Thank you for your support.
Arrowe Sound Hospital Radio serves the patients and staff of Wirral University Teaching Hospital (Arrowe Park) and is one of only two such services, currently operating in Wirral.
From our modern, up-to-date studio facilities, we are able to provide our listeners with a high quality, varied and eclectic mix of programmes and music, to help aid the recovery of patients and make their stay in hospital a comfortable one.
Recent years have seen many changes, challenges and opportunities at the station. Most notably, the switch from analogue broadcasting to operating through the new digital system.
To that end, we have fully upgraded and updated our studio, to keep us in line with other UK Hospital Radio stations. This has enabled us to maintain a high quality service, using the best equipment possible.
Another strength we have is our people. We have a committed team of volunteers, who not only provide our listeners with a varied range of programmes, they also make a valuable contribution to other station activities, such as fundraising, helping with the day to day running of the station and taking on other responsibilities, within the team.
As we are an entirely self funding, voluntary organisation, another area of great importance is maximising our revenue streams, to help us meet the financial costs of maintaining and improving our activities and facilities.Primarily, we do this through subscription payments from members (£30per year) and fundraising activities. However, another valuable avenue for this is programme sponsorship and donations from outside organisations, which we feel is a mutually beneficial activity, given the awareness it raises for one party through the other. (eg: on air mentions, outline of activities, contact details, jingles, etc).
We are currently looking to re-energise this form of fundraising and would be delighted to discuss a potential tie-up with anyone interested in making a contribution to our activities.
If you would like to find out more about making a donation or sponsoring a programme, please contact us at the station and we will arrange a convenient time to discuss it with you further.
