kmfm raises £12k in 12 hours

The kmfm network recently hosted a 12 hour on-air fundraising auction, and raised more than £12,000 for charity.

Money from the event on October 30th went to Kent Needs More Frankys appeal, to help employ more nurses in Kent.

KM Group Head of Radio, Steve Fountain: “We had some fantastic items to auction off during the day and others came in as we broadcast. We had some really good feedback from listeners. For me events of this kind show the strength of radio in the community.”

The auction started at 6am with the local breakfast show presenters and continued for over 12 hours. Among the many presenters involved was Oli Kemp, host of kmfm Medway’s Breakfast Congregation and Programme Controller for that station too. "I can't believe we managed to raise over £12,000 for Marie Curie,” he said. “Even during times like we're in now, where disposable income is hard to find, this just goes to show the strength of local radio in the community and how valuable it really is."

Amanda Mendzil of Marie Curie Cancer Care's Fund Raising Office says “It was a fantastic day. The generosity of the listeners and the station has been wonderful and will provide Kent with more nursing.”
