Colne Radio Crowd Funder - Help!
Colne Radio has now launched the crowd funder campaign to help the station broadcast on FM. We need to raise at least £3,000 over the next two weeks to make this a reality.
Ofcom has put faith in the volunteer station by awarding it a community radio licence. The funds are now needed to secure the transmitter and to bring the studio up to FM broadcast standard.
The idea of the crowd funder is that you can kindly donate anything from £3 to £5,000, and receive a reward in return. We have also had feedback from some very kind folk who want to donate, but not receive a reward. We have factored this into the donation options.
The Board and crowd funder team have been working on the campaign intensively for the past couple of months. We are incredibly grateful to the many local people who have already helped us by appearing in the crowd funding video.
Any money that you can donate will truly be appreciated. You can also help by simply spreading the message. Please do follow Colne Radio on Facebook and Twitter, and share our updates amongst your networks.
This will hopefully also be a campaign that will help the station to grow. We genuinely want people to feel involved and part of the station. By going FM we will be able to have a larger reach to help promote the work of community groups and organisations.
We know that £3,000 is a tall ask. The alternative is to do nothing and the station will stagnate.
