12TH BIRTHDAY MARATHON!

 

Within days of the opportunity being available, 25 companies and organisations have already pledged their support to GTFM’s biggest ever charity fundraising event, which takes place from 7am on Friday 30th May to 10am on Monday 2nd June 2014.

 

The 75 Hour Marathon Broadcast is part of GTFM’s 12th birthday celebrations as Wales’ first full-time FM Community Radio Station, serving Pontypridd and surrounding parts of RCT County Borough. A registered charity in its own right, the station has also teamed up with local breast cancer support charity Rhondda Breast Friends for this event.

 

To raise vital funds for both charities GTFM presenters Mark Andrews (who thought of the idea), Geoff Davies and Gavin Powell will attempt to broadcast LIVE, non-stop, for 75 hours instead of the 15 hours they would normally present individually, accompanied by a host of other GTFM voices including the ones listeners would normally expect to hear at the weekend, who’ve been invited to co-host special versions of their shows. The broadcast will also include special guest appearances and live performances.

 

Despite the early rush of interest there’s plenty of opportunity for more businesses and organisations of all shapes and sizes to get involved. One way is by donating 50 pounds to exclusively sponsor an hour of the broadcast, another is the donation of items or services for auction/raffle. Other activities already confirmed are an RBF Coffee Morning at Frankie and Benny’s, Nantgarw on Friday 30thMay and charity bucket collections at Pontypridd’s Sainsbury’s on Saturday 31st and Tesco Upper Boat on Sunday 1st June.

 

GTFM Station Manager Terry Mann says:

 

"Like most community service organisations and charities, GTFM has to raise a lot more of the money it needs to continue operating following cuts in Government grant funding. This Marathon Broadcast is an excellent way to do just that - as well as celebrate our 12th birthday. We are also on the lookout for a sponsor to help us complete a long term plan to boost our signal in time for this event.  

 

And we are absolutely delighted to be teaming up with Rhondda Breast Friends, a most deserving local charity which provides immensely valuable support to people facing some of life's most difficult challenges"

 

For Rhondda Breast Friends, Centre Manager Christina Ryan says:

 

“RBF are delighted that GTFM has chosen us to partner them for their forthcoming “75 hour Radiothon” at the end of May. We are all very excited to be part of their latest fundraising venture…and we look forward to helping them raise as much money as they can.

 

GTFM has supported Rhondda Breast Friends since we first launched the charity in 2006, now it’s our turn to give something back.

 

“Good luck with the event from all at RBF.”
