Stafford FM presenter is released from studio

Stu Haycock, Stafford FM’s breakfast presenter has been released from the station’s studios after being ‘locked in’ to raise money for the station.

He was locked in by management on Tuesday morning 28th December at 6.30am and they didn’t let him out until he’d raised £3000. He did this by doing a number of challenges, forfeits and running an on air auction. All of the presentation team helped Stu to secure his release with the target being exceeded on Wednesday afternoon after 33 hours and 26 minutes on air.

Stu said: “It was a tall ask, but I had every confidence that our listeners and supporters would assist me and they didn’t let me down. It was so heart warming to hear some great stories about how people were listening to hear the story unfold”.

The money raised will be used towards meeting Stafford FM’s community radio commitments, where 50% of it’s income over $15,000 has to come from funding and donations.
