A radio service catering to patients at King George and Queen’s Hospitals is set to run its third annual 25-hour nonstop broadcast to raise money for charity on the day the clocks go back – and you can get involved by sponsoring a song.
The Big Bedrock Broadcast Marathon will be opened with an interview with Mayor of Havering Councillor Michael Deon Burton on Saturday, October 26 at 1pm and patients at Queen's Hospital in Romford and King George Hospital in Goodmayes are encouraged to tune in.
It will run through to 1pm on Sunday, October 27.
A Bedrock Radio spokesman said: "During the Broadcast we enter Daylight Savings Time () around 2am, which makes the marathon 25 hours!
