Pro-active team demonstrate hospital radio’s alive and well

COMMENT: The return of good weather shouldn’t bring dread

Have your say

Hats off to the team at Haslar Hospital Radio, who stood out in the wind and rain last Saturday on Lee-on-the-Solent seafront.

They may have raised just £50, but the way they have increased awareness of their service is priceless.

They certainly seem to be the most pro-active of charities, as I’m always seeing them out and about or in The News.

I bet many thought hospital radio had died a death, but these guys show it’s still alive and well.

As a former presenter of such a service on the Isle of Wight, I know from personal experience how comforting their efforts are to their listeners and how much their bedside visits are appreciated.
