After 32 years based at our current home, Radio Cherwell is set to move to The Old Gatehouse on the Churchill Hospital Site.

We’re looking to raise £50,000 to enable us to move to these alternative premises and fulfil the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trusts’ wishes to move us quickly, without causing significant impact on our output.

So what do we need £50,000 for?

  • To adapt The Old Gatehouse, to optimse the limited space available
  • To make repairs to the infrastructure and renovate the interior to fit our needs
  • To provide quiet studio facilities and an administrative area
  • To provide a small amount of storage for equipment

We’ve been your friend at the bedside since 1967. We’re the friend that plays you your favourite songs, the friend that entertains you and makes you smile when you’re feeling low, the friend that visits your bedside to keep you company, and the friend that tells you the latest news from the different health organisations and charities that go to help you whilst you’re in hospital.
