Shop window shows for Bee’s Rob Charles

Lancashire UKRD station The Bee has put its breakfast show on display for the week in aid of a local children’s charity.

Breakfast presenter Rob Charles is presenting his show from a shop window in Preston all week.

He’s hosting his show from a shop front in the city’s St George’s Shopping Centre and will also be doing live links into the station throughout the day and be set various challenges as he stays in the location until Friday.

The station is doing it to raise money for The Legacy Rainbow House in Chorley, which provides services for children with brain injuries, disabilities and life limiting conditions.

Gemma Baron, Programme Controller of The Bee said: “The Legacy Rainbow House is such a worthwhile cause, we knew we had to do something special. That’s why we’re the first* radio station anywhere in the world to put a radio presenter in a shop window. *this week.”

The Bee says Rob had no idea he was going into the shop and was woken up at home in the early hours of this morning by his drivetime colleague Paul Winstanley and driven – blindfolded – to Preston.

Rob says: “I was shocked this morning to see my fellow presenter standing over my bed, I also wasn’t expected to be brought to a shop window in Preston City Centre and told I had to spend a week here! I’m though looking forward to meeting lots of new people and hopefully raising a lot of money for Legacy Rainbow House. I’m not looking forward to not be able to have a shower though, and I hope my wife’s going to miss me, but from the look of the bag she’s packed for me, I think she’s hoping it might be a bit longer.”
