    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 charity.

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

    Story

    The Medway Towns is where I live, and I am passionate about the community, and along with others we need our own voice and radio station.

    The new radio station would -
    - Allow local businesses to advertise at affordable prices.
    - Allow charities and Voluntary groups to tell the community about the new ventures free of charge!
    - Give students, the unemployed and disabled people a chance to come and learn new skills, and help then get work.
    - Give opportunities for local singers and bands to have their music broadcast to the community, and help them on the way to stardom.
    - Promote local sports and teams that get no coverage on the radio presently.
    - Broadcast news and interest stories from the Medway Towns
    - Provide local shows for local people, and get Medway talking and engaging in important issues facing the towns.
    - Have Breakfast and Drive Time shows solely focusing on the local area, local road, local news and those who live in the community.
    - Create a real local radio station, and not be a 'local' radio station based in London or broadcast countywide programmes.

    Please support our project, if you live in Medway then donate anything from a pound upwards, anything will make a difference.

    The money will allow us to apply for an FM community licence, to find studios, buy equipment needed to broadcast, and then broadcast to the Medway Towns!

    A streaming radio service is running at www.iceradio.org.uk for you to hear the type of music and what we could sound like on air!

      Evening, been in talks with a satellite company who will happily broadcast the station in the mean time but the costs will be around £6,000 a year with set up fees. So please this is a real possibility and looking for your all to make a difference and help us out and create your radio station. thank you
