Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Cowes Radio has been running as an independent radio station for 4 decades here at the 192 year old regatta entertaining and informing all that happens on the water and ashore. Now we need a little help from you to keep going through this year and beyond. The rising running costs and high licensing fees place the future of Cowes Radio in jeopardy.
Cowes Radio has been on air at Lendy Cowes Week since 1985, entertaining and informing everyone that visits for spectating and partaking. Enthusiasts tune in online from all around the World, as well as on 87.7fm on their radios around the Solent area.
We are an independent station, only able to bring the award-winning coverage by support from advertisers and sponsors. These are becoming incredibly hard to find, and we have to pay the ever increasing fees for licensing all the aspects of our broadcasts, putting Cowes Radio's future in doubt.
We are suggesting a donation of a 50p per foot of craft for a shout out on air for your or your friend's boat and all the crew's names. Just a few £ for all our amazing shore supporters will all help keep us on air. Please include your details with your donation and listen out for your mention!
We at Cowes Radio thank you for all your kind words and support. Visit our website for more information and testimonials.
We love making it, we hope you like listening.
