Friends of Hospital Radio Norwich
The object of Hospital Radio Norwich is to help relieve sickness, stress and distress caused to patients through being in hospital as well as to distract from the monotony of hospital routine. Also the giving of general information and health messages as part of the service.
In our 45th year of operation HRN has started a Friends of Hospital Radio Norwich section in order to help raise funds to keep and maintain our equipment in top class condition and up to date so our programmes are as good as can be.
Running a hospital radio station does not come cheap. As well as equipment we have to pay yearly licences to play the music patients enjoy. Like all licences, they increase every year and by joining the Friends of Hospital Radio Norwich and donating just £2 a month, you will allow us to continually improve the service we offer the patients in hospital. When you sign up you will be taken to our sign-up form on the GoCardless website thus protecting your details on this secure site.
It is very simple to join, just click on the button or click here-Join HRN Friends-and you will be taken to the GoCardless Secure site to fill in the Direct Debit form.
Once you have signed up we will send you a welcome email asking if you wish to be kept informed of what is happening here at HRN. Also, we will ask if you would give us permission (if you are a UK tax payer) to claim Gift Aid on your donation as HMRC will give us an extra 50p making your contribution worth £2.50 at no cost to yourself.
Thank you for your consideration to help us.
Except for Hospital Radio Norwich members no personal data is stored on this site and our request form is independent of this site and any information you put on the form is emailed directly to our studio where the request is played and the email deleted
