Thank You for looking at the Radio Lonsdale website. We are run by volunteers and are registered charity No:503549. None of our volunteers charges for their free time and we rely 100% on the charitable support of local companies and residents.
Although we have no labour costs, the upkeep and replacement of audio equipment is extremely costly. During 2016 we will also be upgrading our internet connection to fibre optic to speed up our outside broadcast systems. Therefore every penny donated is put to good use and must be approved by our Executive Committee.
We know that times are hard, so we appreciate any donation no matter how large or small, it all adds up!
You can donate by clicking on the Paypal links at the bottom of most pages. Don’t worry if you don’t have a Paypal account, you can make a one off payment using any debit or credit card.
Donations may also be made when buying or selling on e-Bay using our ebay4charity account! You can select a % amount when selling or simply make a one off donation! You can also donate small change during our live broadcasts from both ASDA and Morrison’s – please watch forthcoming events for details!
