Twice around the clock for HWD

A HOSPITAL radio station will be going on the air for 48 straight hours in a bid to raise cash to keep it running.

Volunteer presenters at HWD Hospital Radio will be broadcasting from 6pm on Friday March 31 to 6pm on Sunday April 2.

The station serves patients and staff at Dewsbury and District Hospital, although anyone can listen as it broadcasts live on the internet.

As well as a variety of programmes and music being featured, there will also be live commentary from Dewsbury Rams' game against Featherstone Rovers.

Vikki Padgett, voluntary services manager at the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, added: “HWD Hospital Radio provides a fantastic service to help aid the recovery of patients in Dewsbury and District Hospital and connect them with the outside world during their hospital stay.

“The Trust is helping to promote their programmes across the hospital and I’d urge people to support this willing group of volunteers by making a donation, however small, to keep the station broadcasting.”
