Hospital Radio Tunbridge Wells is £5k better off after being awarded a grant by the National Lottery.
Volunteers at the station will use the extra money from the Awards For All scheme, to replace the outdated studio computer equipment and software that keeps the station running 24 hours a day.
Project manager Tony Finn said: "The equipment is getting old and we did not want it to affect the quality of the service we provide to patients. We are delighted that Awards For All are helping us to upgrade the system and continue providing patients with music, information and entertainment at any time of the day or night.
"The grant also means we can have the same facilities at our fundraising and publicity events as we have in the studios, which will enhance the quality of the broadcasts."
