MKFM shortlisted for MK Inspirational Award
Milton Keynes local radio station MKFM has been shortlisted as one of five for the ‘Most Charitable Business’ award at The MK Inspirational Awards 2017.
The awards are taking place locally on 10th June and organisers say the event will give recognition to inspirational and established individuals and groups from the local area.
In addition, four of the five nominees for ‘Best Radio Presenter’ at the awards are currently working with MKFM.
The station tells us over the last five years, it has attended over 500 local events and has helped raise over £1 million for local charities. The station continues to promote local events online and on-air for free in addition to running regular interviews with local charities.
Darren Dorrington, Managing Director at MKFM said “We are delighted to be shortlisted for this award. Over the last five years we must have attended almost every main event in Milton Keynes and have helped raise some much-needed funds for so many great causes.”
“We are also delighted to launch one of our biggest ever community challenges in April with a target of collecting 50,000 tins of food for the MK Food Bank. Winning the award would be great recognition for our team who have given up their time to support our community.”
