Lollipop gets 20k from Pudsey

Radio Lollipop Newcastle has received a donation of twenty thousand pounds from the Trustees of Children in Need, which will help towards funds for a new studio development.

The £19,965 grant will cover the cost of the basic Radio Lollipop studio in Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary and additional sensory features such as mood lighting and a data projector to encourage the children to visit and enjoy the new studio.

Newcastle fundraiser Kate Fenwick says of the grant: "it is fantastic news for us. It means we can keep our minds on the real business of working one-on-one with the children who need us, without having the fear of not being able to afford to move next year looming over our heads. This one grant, is a massive, massive boost to morale for the volunteers and the children. Everyone's talking about how fantastic it will be to see the new studio and the kids are really looking forward to it now".
