Volunteers raise �2,000 for Radio Northwick Park

Shoppers in Kenton and Harrow contribute to festive fundraising events

A group of radio station volunteers raised almost �2,000 by participating in a catalogue of festive activities.

The team from Radio Northwick Park (RNP) kicked off their fundraising extravaganza by switching on the Christmas lights in Harrow which raised over �400.

This was closely followed by fundraising events at Sainsbury’s in Kenton, and the team gracing shoppers in Harrow with Christmas tunes over two weekends.

This raised almost �500 and more than �1,000 respectively.

There are more than 120 volunteers at RNP, a registered charity which broadcasts to patients in Northwick Park Hospital.

The money raised will go towards running the charity based in Northwick Park Hospital, so they can develop their services and provide more for the patients.

Matt Blank, RNP chairman, said: “I cannot thank people enough for all the kindness they have shown us throughout December and indeed the whole year.

“Their gratitude and support has been overwhelming. Not only have their kind donations been forthcoming, but it’s been wonderful to chat with the public and hear so many positive experiences they had of Radio Northwick Park during their stay in hospital.”
