Radiothon 2019

Oldham Community Radio 99.7fm Fundraising Radiothon 1st-17th March 2019

If you are a regular listener to Oldham Community Radio 99.7fm you will know that for the past few years we’ve run our annual radiothon. To tie in with our 12th anniversary of full time broadcasting in 2019 we need to raise even more than in previous years.

Last year we moved into our new premises in Oldham Town centre, however in doing this we incurred several thousand pounds worth of legal, technical and building costs above those budgeted for.

Like all not-for-profit community groups in this age of austerity fund-raising is increasingly difficult. Over the past 18 months our income has significantly dropped and with current liabilities approaching £20,000 we are extremely close to having to make the difficult decision with regards to our viability and if we should close-down.

Over the past 12 years hundreds of volunteers have been involved creating over a hundred thousand hours of radio broadcasts. So we ask that if you can afford to make a donation, no matter how small or large, that you contribute to our Radiothon to ensure that Oldham Community Radio doesn’t become the latest name in the list of community radio stations to shut due to funding issues.

Please don’t leave it to some one else and help ensure Oldham Community Radio 99.7fm can continue to broadcast for years to come.
