Chief Executive, Phil Riley, commented: “When we break the news of these phenomenal figures to those benefiting, it is not surprising that tears are shed. This sum is sufficient to make a real difference, and it’s a great tribute to the spirit and energy of our listeners. We’re happy to have played our role in getting them there and delivering the event safely on the day”.

The station believes the events to be amongst the biggest ever single station, single-day fundraising events in UK radio.

The 2013 events supported Birmingham Women’s Hospital, Cure Leukaemia for Kids, Help Harry Help Others, Acorns Children’s Hospice, Russells Hall Hospital, Promise Dreams, Hope House, the Children’s Emergency Department at University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire, Megan Baker House and New Hope.
