Charity description

Valley Park Radio logo
Valley Park Radio is a national award winning small charity run by a dedicated team of volunteers providing a hospital radio service to the Darent Valley Hospital. From our studios located within the hospital we provide a wide variety of live programmes and music 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our core programmes are our request shows. Teams of ward visitors are a frequent sight around the hospital, chatting to patients and taking their requests to play on air.

In December 2017 our long-serving member and programme controller David Reynolds died aged 37. David strove to beat his cancer. It was to be the only thing that really got the better of him.
A gifted musician who loved entertaining, especially his friends and family with his musical talents; VPR  was a big part of David’s life, he started volunteering when he was 12. Please keep his memory & this Radio Station alive! His Memorial Fund Donations page can be found under Sponsors link on the RIGHT of this Page and at 

If you have a friend or relative currently in hospital then why not send us a dedication and a song request for them. You can either call us on 01322 428362 at any time of the day and leave a voicemail. We currently have live programmes Monday, Tuesday and Sunday evenings from 7pm and Saturday’s from 8am to 1pm.

All Valley Park Radio programmes are broadcast via the Hospedia bedside entertainment consoles. Valley Park Radio is FREE to listen to, but we need money to keep the Radio Station On-Air. Please Give Generously to VPR.

Right now we are planning to renew our Broadcasting Desk and Equipment at a cost of £16000. We are also needing to update and refresh our Record and CD Library as well as replacing a whole host of other equipment we use to bring music and talk shows to the patients of Darent Valley Hospital.
