Annual street collection

Our radio station is a not-for-profit organisation, which has to constantly raise funds to pay the bills and keep our programmes on air.

One of our most important fundraisers is our annual street collection which is taking place today and tomorrow (July 19th and 20th). If you are about the town on either day, and see one of our official collectors, please do your best to support us!

Collectors are stationed at Supervalu, the post office and in the Silverbridge shopping centre today. Tomorrow they will return to Supervalu and to the post office. The collectors themselves are also station members so, if you have any questions on the station etc., please feel free to stop and have a chat with them about it.

Thanks, as always, for your continued support.

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!
