Broadcastathon raised over €5,000

Claremorris Community Radio is pleased to announce that its fundraising Broadcastathon 2012 event was a tremendous success.

With over 98% of sponsorships forms returned the total amount raised stands at an incredible €5,549.  This represents and increase of around 38% on last year’s inaugural event.

A handful of volunteers still need to return their sponsorship forms so the definitive final figure will presumable exceed €5,600. These last wo/men standing are urged to return their forms and donations to the Station Manager, Kevin Griffiths, as soon as possible.  It’s almost three months ago, after all!

Well done to all involved, especially the staff and volunteers to set up and maintained the special studio in Innovation House throughout that exhilarating weekend.

See you all for Broadcastathon 2013!
