The hospital radio station serving Morecambe Bay Hospitals has been successful in obtaining a grant for £8,700 from the Big Lottery fund.
The Grant is being used by Bay Trust Radio to purchase Comrex Access which will allow the station to broadcast live events from anywhere using 3g, 4g, Wi-Fi and broadcast those events live back to patients.
John Williamson, President and Station Manager told RadioToday: “We are delighted that our application to the National Lottery has been successful. We are excited that over the coming months we can be broadcasting from events around the county.”
Bay Trust Radio is a local charity that has over 35 members, and provides bedside entertainment to patients at all the Morecambe Bay Hospitals and to those former patients listening at home.
