Northwick Park hosts fundraising weekend

Volunteers at a hospital radio station are attempting their biggest fundraiser of the year.

The team at Radio Northwick Park are organising The Radio Northwick Park Games including a 2012-minute live show, 50-mile bike rides, a half marathon and a 1,000m swim at midnight.

Fundraising Officer Dan Cottrell said: “With over 25 volunteers playing a part in the weekend, the team is tremendously excited about the event. A lot of preparation has gone into the event, which will be the charity’s biggest fundraiser of the year. I’m really excited.”

The funds the volunteers raise over the weekend 21/22 July will go towards running the charity, which has over 120 volunteers and has been broadcasting to patients for over 40 years. Volunteer David Reece will be attempting the 2012-minute show.

He said: “I like the challenge of creating compelling radio for 33.5 hours straight. Some people will be listening on their computers listening at home or work, but others will in hospital and I really want to make them feel better.

“Radio Northwick Park is a cause very close to my heart and I think this could be a very good way to raise funds to keep it going.”

People can donate by visiting Radio Northwick Park’s JustGiving page.
