GMG Radio raises £200k for heroes

An 18-hour on-air appeal to raise money for the Help for Heroes charity has brought in almost £200,000.

Help for Heroes Day was heard on all 13 radio stations owned by GMG; Real Radio, Smooth Radio and Rock Radio on Tuesday 10th November.

The day featured guests including Simon Cowell, Spandau Ballet, Ronan Keating, The Soldiers, Michael Ball, Mica Paris and the return of The Chris Tarrant Show which – for the first time in the group’s history – was broadcast live across the entire GMG network.

Money from online and text message donations will be handed over to the Help for Heroes charity which is aiming to build a network of recovery centres for injured troops across the UK.

John Simons, Group Programme Director for GMG Radio said; “Altogether the day was an outstanding success and our listeners embraced the event totally. To be able to help such a worthy cause on such a grand scale, raising nearly £200,000, is simply phenomenal and a testament to the whole team across GMG Radio but, most of all, highlights the generosity of our listeners.”
