Chris Deighton, trustee of Bedrock, which broadcasts from Queen’s Hospital, said: “I want to say how delighted that not only the members of Bedrock Radio are for receiving funds from the Havering Fund programme, but more importantly the patients who will be able to continue listening to the content which many find extremely therapeutic.”
