Radiothon 2017

Claremorris Community Radio is pleased to announce that we will be running a live, 24-hour-long, live fundraiser at the start of St. Patrick’s weekend!

The Radiothon will see the station broadcast live for 24 hours, starting at 6pm on March 16th.  Our volunteer hosts will be in the studios throughout the night and next day, all in the name of fundraising for the station’s survival.

As well as most of your favourite CCR shows, the night and day will also feature a host of live music, performed by talented Claremorris residents.

The event will be discussed at this week’s volunteer meeting, which will take place in the station at 7pm on Thursday (March 2nd).  Members seeking further information on the event or those who wish to volunteer for a broadcasting slot during the event are asked to attend.

Sponsorship cards will be available both at the volunteer meeting and from the station office.

This will be the fourth marathon event hosted by the station and the previous three were great fun and raised a lot of money for the station.  This promises to be more of the same!
