Radio Sunderland for Hospitals is a registered charity, (No. 1073012) and was established in 1953 to provide a personal bedside radio service to the patients in the Sunderland Royal Hospital and St Benedict's Hospice.
Running any radio station, even a hospital service like ours, is an expensive business! We rely on the fundraising activities of our members to keep us "on-air".
You can watch a video of the work of a typical Hospital Radio station by clicking here.
The stations Fundraising and Public Relations Officer has the important (and some would say unenviable) job of raising sufficient funds during the year to not only keep us on air but to enable us to grow - to repair and replace old or obsolete equipment. The landscape of radio broadcasting has changed immensely since we began, from vinyl through CD to digital audio storage, the speed of change, especially in the last ten years, has been breathtaking!
