Chippenham Council awards funding to radio station

Chippenham Council have awarded Chippenham Hospital Radio nearly £2,000 as part of their Community Donations scheme.

The money will allow the radio station to purchase Outside Broadcast equipment allowing them to attend events in the town and adds another level of service they provide to hospital patients and the wider community.

The Community Donations sub-committee meet three times a year to hear from applicants who are applying for a community donation. Applications must have objectives that support a vibrant Town Centre, a sustainable environment or neighbourhood and community benefits. They can also be in support of the voluntary and community sector working on improving the quality of life for residents of Chippenham.

Councillor Nick Murry, Chair of the Community Donations Sub-Committee said, “We are delighted to be supporting our local community groups with the community donation scheme and look forward to seeing the projects develop as they continue to support our Town Centre.”
