Torbay Hospital Radio is delighted to announce that we have won the Radio Broadcast NPO of the Year!

Whats does NPO mean?

For those who are not familiar with the acronym NPO, it simply means Non-Profit Organisation, in our case we are a volunteer run charity.

Prestige Awards

What our Chairman has to say

Chairman Lee Thomas was very excited about the news of Torbay Hospital Radio winning the Radio Broadcast NPO of the Year. He put the success down to ‘a close knit, dedicated team of volunteers who are always looking to provide excellent service for listeners, especially those who are unfortunate enough to be in hospital.’ When asked him what was next he was thrilled to say, “Studio 2 will be up and running in the near future, when we hope to produce even more top notch programming. It really is  great honour to be part of the team.”

He went on to say, “Obviously running the station is not without it’s challenges, but we are very grateful to the support we receive from the hospital. We are now looking to ramp up our coverage in the wards and departments around the hospital site. Providing  much needed light relief for patients and staff in what are of course busy times for the NHS.” Lee Thomas - Torbay Hospital Radio

He also added, “We are always looking for new people, so if you want to get behind the mic or just help out at our outside events please get in touch.”
