On Sunday 12th April, 2015 Hospital Radio Medway had a visit from the Mayor of Medway, Cllr Barry Kemp, and the new Chairman of the Medway Maritime Trust, Mrs Shena Winning. Our guests were asked to name some music that was significant for them and Eileen Griffin ran the programme. The conversation was wide ranging and free flowing as was the choice of music from Handel, Rolling Stones, Queen, Mahler and many more. HRM invites the Mayor every year to raise the profile of HRM in the community.
One of the Members of HRM, Kate Stahl, has a programme once a week when various charities come into our Studios and talk about the work that they do. This programme has proved so successful that we now have a waiting list of people asking to be involved.
HRM put out a plea for donations of Easter Eggs to be donated for distribution round the Wards and we have been inundated this year with 360 Eggs, cuddly toys, activity packs as well as smaller bags of mixed sweets all of which were donated by local businesses. Asda's customers filled 2 trollies with gifts for HRM to distribute.
