Smooth gives £100k to charity

Smooth Radio in the Northwest has presented Macmillan Cancer Support with a cheque for £102,450 after a year of fundraising.

Smooth Radio’s Brand Programme Director Steve Collins and breakfast presenter Chris Best handed over a station record breaking cheque to the cancer support team this week.

The money, the highest amount ever raised at the GMG Radio station, was raised through many fund raising activates which included a coffee morning, running in marathons and their annual Bring A Pound To Work Day.

Steve Collins, who as well as being Brand Programme Director is the presenter on the station’s afternoon show, said; “We are so pleased and all very proud to be able to give this cheque to Macmillan Cancer Support on behalf of our listeners and the people of the North West. We are of course only the collectors and holders of these monies and it is down to the continued generosity of the public, shops, companies and their staff who join in and all the staff here at GMG Radio who care so much and give so selflessly.”
