Weʼre raising £10,000 to create a new FM local, community radio station in the Medway Towns!

Location
Gillingham, United Kingdom
Time left
45 days to go

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

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
