Oldham Community Radio 99.7fm celebrates ten years of full time broadcasting on St Patrick’s Day 17th March 2017.
We have achieved much over the past decade and many things have changed, a significant change being a significant reduction in grant funding available to all community groups. There are also restrictions on the amount of commercial income we can generate.
Over the past few years we have adopted a model common in many other countries where community radio stations seeks donations from their listeners. This has proved extremely successful and we give thanks to all who have supported us.
It is now that time of the year when we hold our annual Radiothon week. For just one week a year we dedicate to fundraising, and if you enjoy listening to Oldham Community Radio 99.7fm we ask you to please donate in one of the following ways:

Oldham Community Radio, like the around two hundred other community radio stations around the UK is an independent not for profit organisation operated and influenced by the communities they serve.
We are different to the BBC and Commercial radio stations. Community Radio stations receives no money from the licence fee and are restricted in their commercial activities.
In many countries around the world community radio stations are funded by donations from their audience were the community radio station asks it’s listeners to make a financial donation and those who can afford to make donations that enables the community radio station to pay it’s bills and remain viable.
