Say hello to my SugaRadio Family.
Things are changing
here at SugaRadio.
Currently our team
is made up of 3 members of staff and around 10 volunteers, not
to mention our endless guests who remain loyal to our station.
We are proud to have served our Leamington Spa and Warwick community
for nearly 7 years already; providing a platform and a voice for
a range of our community and charitable organisations. We reach
out to our local businesses, schools, theatres, artists and musicians
from Leamington and further afield. We continue to grow and remain
excited about our future opportunities. Like commercial stations
we produce shows but we (at SugaRadio) do not make profit which
makes us and our course very different to the bigger stations.
Our volunteers consist of valuable people from all backgrounds
and with all levels of radio experience. We give them opportunity
to learn new skills in radio and other media. These skills are
transferable to other avenues in life and we aim to help increase
self-confidence, develop CVs and develop the potential of people
gaining paid employment to benefit our Country more widely. From
a personal perspective, I ("Peanuts"; Mike Salmon) have personal
experience in relation to mental health illness and impact/struggles.
I have had a journey in relation to this with my own daughter
and can see how lack of routine and sense of purpose can make
getting out of the bed in the morning; feel impossible and pointless.
SugaRadio reaches out to these people to help turn lives around.
Our door is open to people of all ages and we work with our local
students to give them new chances. We bring our people together
to give hope, inclusion and a reason to get out of bed on dark
mornings. We ask you to help us please.
Our struggle is
over the last 2 years, Covid and lack of financial support; have
led to us having to give up our small working station and we are
looking into finding a new one over the next few months. At that
time any person broadcasting on our station and in full employment,
will be asked to donate a small monthly
fee. (Some may be exempt at our discretion and dependant on circumstances.)
Thank You Mike
Salmon. SugaRadio, Your Town, Your Station.
