Hospital radio volunteer to cycle 97.3km for charity

Apple FM’s Chris Wareing is cycling 97.3 kilometres without leaving the site at Musgrove Park Hospital in a charity fundraiser.

On Wednesday 17th April at 9am Chris will take up the challenge on the concourse with a static bike supplied by Turbo Trainer Hire.

The hospital’s charity, Love Musgrove will be there for the Cycle Against Cancer and the station will broadcast the event live.

Money raised will be split equally between Love Musgrove for The Beacon Centre to help fight cancer and aid its treatment in Taunton Deane, and to help fund 97.3 Apple FM.

The station has been on air for 55 years, originally as Taunton Hospital Radio Broadcasting Service, which launched in 1969. It became Apple FM in 2004 and in 2015 was awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
