QUAY-FM today received another large donation.
Local Internet entrepreneur Nigel Roberts handed over the cheque at the weekend for five thousand pounds to station manager Rob ‘Dougal’ Bohan on behalf of the AY Enterprise Trust which is a local Registered Charity.
The funds will go towards the stations newly instituted “equipment renewal fund”.
Dougal explained: “Unfortunately, most of the equipment at the station is nearing the end of its useful life. Our technical team do a remarkable job of bringing you the service, but the fact is that some of the equipment, such as the mixer is nearly 20 years old, and others, such as computers need to be updated every three or four years”.
The target for the equipment fund is sixty thousand pounds, to be raised by the end of 2021.
Dougal continued: “This large donation, along with one of the same size from the Blonde Hedgehog, will set us on our way. But we will need every penny to continue the essential service we provide.”
