A hospital radio station held a 25-hour marathon broadcast to raise funds to keep providing entertainment and joy to patients.

Bedrock Radio, who serve Queens Hospital, played back-to-back requests for 25 hours between Saturday, October 27 through to Sunday.

Manning the studio were presenters Robert Wilcox and Scott Mills, who interviewed the deputy mayor of Havering Cllr Michael Deon-Burton.

Listners would donate a small amount of money in exchange for making songs requests, with the broadcasters still tallying up the total.

“It went very well,” said Secretary Chris Deighton.

“We are entirely self-funded and we have to do this in order to keep things running.

“Everything here is run by volunteers.”

The radio station is gearing up to run Christmas discos over the festive period and intend to plan a sponsored horse racing event in the new year.
