Radiothon is back for 2019 and you are already helping us!

Radiothon is back for 2019 – our 100-hour non-stop broadcast event over the long Easter Weekend (18-22 April). We are asking local businesses to sponsor our efforts once again this year as we attempt to raise at least £2500 towards running costs for our station. We began trawling the streets of Barrow, Dalton and Ulverston last week and we have received a positive response so far. We will keep you posted with all our first batch of sponsors very soon.

For the reasonable sponsorship fee of £20 per hour, your business can get involved! You will receive 4 mentions in the hour you sponsor, will be heard by listeners in Furness General as well as those listening on our website and you can send your company logo to be displayed on our notice board which will be present in the lead up to and throughout the event. You can even pay us a visit during the 100-hours if you would like – we would love to see you!

If you are interested in sponsoring our event, please email or if you have sponsored and wish to have your company logo displayed on our notice board please email

The Radiothon 100-hour broadcast will begin at 6pm on Thursday 18th April and ends at 10pm on Monday 22nd April. We try to attempt this big challenge every other year in a bid to entertain the patients, staff and visitors of Furness General, raise much needed funds for our charity and promote ourselves in the hospital as well as the local community.
