Charity description

Winchester Radio logo
Winchester Radio provides the hospital radio service at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital, Winchester, and will be launching a community radio station across the city in 2018.

Winchester Radio has two charitable objects. The first allows us to provide our hospital service. The second allows us to broadcast to the Winchester area, aiming to improve the health & wellbeing of local citizens.
The mental and physical health of people is affected by many things not immediately associated with health. As well as keeping fit and active, eating healthily, etc., health is also affected by the built and natural environment, the local community, housing, education, employment, etc. So, as well as encouraging people to directly look after their health we’ll be encouraging people to engage in local civic society, the arts, volunteering, etc.
And, of course, whilst our programming will be much more speech-based than the local commercial radio stations (and we hope you’ll find that interesting and informative), we will also be playing a great mix of music.

Charity No: 1160752
