    Weʼve raised £5,950 to renew the licence of our community radio station

    Funded on Saturday, 4th July 2015

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Cuillin FM's broadcast licence has to be renewed every 12 years. Our current licence expires next summer and the deadline for re-applying to Ofcom for a new one is Tuesday 23rd June, 2015. This will allow us to stay on air for a further 12 years. However the cost of applying for the renewal is a huge £6000 and as a very small community station, it's money that we simply don't have and the final date to re-apply for our licence is just 3 weeks away.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
