Surrey and North East Hampshire’s Eagle Radio is hosting a 12 hour Radiothon on Friday 24 May supporting local charity Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care.
The charity is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and the Eagle team has set a target of raising £40,000 to help fund one of Phyllis Tuckwell’s nurses, who provide supportive and compassionate end of life care to patients and families across West Surrey and North East Hampshire.
Fundraising will include Eagle listeners requesting a song dedication in return for a donation as well as the chance to bid for money can`t buy auction items.
Local schools and businesses will also be supporting the appeal with fundraising activities taking place across the day.
The Radiothon will be on air from 7am to 7pm. Staff, volunteers and supporters of Phyllis Tuckwell will also be participating in the day.
Eagle Radio Breakfast show presenter, Bev Hunter, has organised the day and explained that there may be a few surprises during the Radiothon: “You never quite know what might happen on the day-whether that`s an unexpected donation or a surprise visit or two. Whatever happens we will be having a lot of fun and hopefully raising lots of money for a fantastic local charity.”
