Cool FM hands £100k to charity

Bauer Radio's Cool FM has handed over a cheque for £100,000 to the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children through its Cash for Kids charity.

The Northern Irish station says the money will help fund vital new equipment, give extra support to poorly youngsters and held pay for specialist research and training.

The money was raised during a three-day fundraising push and, after handing over the cheque earlier today, Darren Fowler, Charity Manager at Cool FM's Cash for Kids, said: "We were overwhelmed by the generosity of everyone that contributed. From those who gave us whatever change they had in their pockets to those who signed up to be Cash for Kids 'Champions'. Donations were made in lots of different ways. A local supermarket chain came in with a bucket full of money which they'd collected on the day. Staff and customers alike from many businesses throughout the province all pulled together to make this one of the most significant donations Cash for Kids has ever made, everyone who supported the campaign should feel very proud of their contribution"

Darren added: "The results proved that people in Northern Ireland really do have big hearts and we're delighted with the significant sum raised. Well done to everyone who pledged – your money will make a difference to the little lives of those who need it the most."
