Reading 107 helps Give a Child a Chance

Reading 107 has created a new partnership with the Berkshire Community Foundation to support a charity set up by Radio 210’s former manager.

It’s part of the local Give A Child A Chance appeal which has been raising money since 1985 for disadvantaged children and children with disabilities.. It’s provided individual children and the groups who help them with a wide range of support such as tailor-made trikes, pushchairs and wheel chairs, specialised computers, learning aids and therapeutic equipment sensory toys and games.

Tony Grundy, a founder and former Managing Director of Reading 107 and now consultant at the station said: ‘In years gone by when I was Managing Director of the old Radio 210 in the 80s, I had an idea based on the fact that charity should begin at home and particularly wanted to help disadvantaged children. I came up with the name ‘Give a Child a Chance’ and we raised many thousands of pounds then and all these years later it still exists, and we are thrilled to team up with the charity again. We at Reading 107 will work very hard in a number of exciting ventures to highlight the needs of the deserving children in this area. I truly believe a local station like Reading 107 can now do that.’

Reading 107 have planned this year’s fundraising event for a “dress down day” on Friday 9th November, where staff bring a pound to work so they can wear whatever they want. Reading 107 is inviting businesses and employees across Reading to take part too.
