Hospital station raises £2k over Christmas

Radio Northwick Park has raised almost £2,000 in December after a handful of festive fundraisers in the community.

The volunteers kicked off December by switching on the Christmas lights in Harrow, which raised over £400.

This was closely followed by fundraising events at Sainsburys in Kenton and two weekends gracing Debenhams shoppers with Christmas tunes, which raised almost £500 and over £1,000 respectively.

The charity, which broadcasts to patients in Northwick Park Hospital, has over 120 volunteers who visit patients in hospital. The money raised will go towards running the charity based in Northwick Park Hospital, so they can develop their services and provide more for the patients.

Chairman Matt Blank said: “I cannot thank the people of Harrow enough for all the kindness they have shown us throughout December and indeed the whole year. Their gratitude and support has been overwhelming. Not only have their kind donations been forthcoming, but it’s been wonderful to chat with the public and hear so many positive experiences they had of Radio Northwick Park during their stay in hospital.”
