Radio 1RPH 2019 Appeal

Radio 1RPH 2019 Appeal – 21–29 September

We love bringing you our programmes, but we need your help to keep doing that.

It takes a lot of money to run a radio station.

In the past, much of our funds have come through regular government grants. However, the financial landscape is changing for organisations like ours that provide free specialised services to members of our community. We’ve cut our spending hard, but the fact is that government grants no long cover our running costs.

That’s why we are having an Appeal in September and we are asking people to give generously, so that we can continue to broadcast the programmes you love. The appeal will be held over the period from 21st to 29th September. Please think about making a tax deductible donation to keep Radio 1RPH on air.

2019 Annual Dinner

We had a great Annual Dinner on the 1st of May 2019 with special guests, Sir Peter and Lady Cosgrove.

Thanks to all who attended, we raised nearly $7,000 to help support the station!

Here are some photos from the event.
