Story

In order to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, on the 8th and 9th March two University Radio York presenters, Tom Edwards and Will Chalk, will attempt to present the longest show ever broadcast on the station. Starting at 7am on Friday and finishing at 11pm on Saturday, the show will run continuously for staggering 40 hours. Joining them will be Newsreader Ben Bason, a selection of university students and staff, live bands, representatives from MacMillan and a host of celebrity guests.

How can you support them? Tune in online at ury.org.uk or, if you’re on campus, on 1350am, tweet your support using the hashtag #urymarathon, and, most importantly, donate to Macmillan via this page. For more information visit www.macmillan.org.uk and www.facebook.com/ury1350
