2018 Church gate collection

Throughout this weekend, Claremorris Community Radio will conduct its annual church gate collection, not only in Claremorris itself but also in some of the churches in the surrounding area.

Collectors will be stationed outside the parish church in Claremorris during the weekend.  There will also be volunteers at the churches in Barnacarroll and Crossboyne.

The station constantly needs to raise funds to continue providing its service to the community of Claremorris and its environs.  Thanks, as always, for all the support you give us.

Review of 2014

check_list_tickedAt the most recent management meeting the station’s activity plan for 2014 was reviewed and the following achievements were outlined:

  • 11 new volunteers were fully trained and are now active in the station
  • Three commercial training courses were successfully completed
  • Five volunteer meetings were held.  The management gave a commitment that volunteer meetings will be held every two months in 2015.
  • Seven Sound & Vision applications were successful.  The next S&V result is due on 23/01/15, which will hopefully bring more.

Alas, a few goals weren’t achieved.  There was no volunteer-driven fundraising in 2014 whilst two other, staff-driven, fundraising events were poorly supported.   Some of the station’s subcommittees were not reviewed as per the plan. This review has now moved to early 2015.

Currently, the station’s activity plan for 2015 is being prepared based on the strategic objectives plan 2014-16.  We will publish the plan here, once it is completed and adopted by committee.
