A Word From Our Chairman
“THR started in 1978 and we became a registered charity in 1995. We are made up solely of volunteers and we provide a free service of music, requests and entertainment for the patients and staff within Torbay Hospital to try and help their time in hospital pass a little more easily.
We raise funds to keep our station going by providing Public Address and Commentaries, often broadcasting out of our bright yellow THR caravan at many of our local traditional outdoor events and fetes such as Paignton Carnival Week, Marldon Apple Pie Fair, Kingsteignton Ram Roast, The Pedal Car Grand Prix and Agatha Christie Week.
We are proud to say that we are one big happy team here at THR so if you do happen to see or hear us out and about at any of these outdoor events please do come and say hello or perhaps you may wish to consider becoming a member of THR yourself and get involved. If so then please click onto our application form page here on the website as we are always looking for new dedicated members to join our team .” Bob Myers. (Chairman)
We would like to record our thanks to the Hospital Authority without whose help and support we could not exist.
