The countdown begins…

Broadcastathon-small

Claremorris Community Radio’s third Broadcastathon will take place over the weekend of August 9th to 11th.

The broadcastathon is an annual event in which CCR volunteers produce and broadcast 48 hours of live radio to raise money towards the running of their station.

Last year’s event was a huge success – over €5,000 was raised! It was also tremendous fun and saw several volunteers broadcast live for the first time from our special studio in Innovation House.

This year’s event will be even bigger and will feature live shows from the upstairs venue in Maxwell’s on Main Street, a public stage in The Square and, in assocation with Frame Productions, it will once again be video-streamed on the internet.

Volunteers are asked to pop in to the station over the next week to collect a sponsorship card for the Broadcastathon.  A card for each volunteer can be found in the green room between the studios.  The average amount collected last year worked out at just under €50 per volunteer.  Let’s aim to beat that this year!

There are still a few places left for the brilliant circus Summer camp that we are running in conjunction with Galway Community Circus at the start of August.

The camp, which is for children aged between 8 and 16 years of age, will run in the Town Hall between August 7th and 9th, with the participants then putting on a small show in the Square on Saturday 10th.

If you would like to register for this fun camp, or simply require further information, please contact the station at 094 9373737 or email admin@ccr946.ie.
