Along with our ongoing running costs Coventry Hospital Radio are trying to raise an extra £22.000 to completely update our ageing studio equipment. As we don’t get any funding from the NHS or UHCW we are constantly out and about trying to raise funds with the hope of reaching our target.
If you think you could help us with this venture, then please make a donation by selecting our Virgin Money Giving icon.
We thank you in advance for this
